‘Either Confront Terrorist Groups Or Allow Iranian Forces To Enter’: Iran Threatens Pakistan
Iran’s military commander Muhammad Beghari on Tuesday said that the country has provided Pakistan with ‘information on the terrorist group’s hidden and semi-hidden training centres’.
Later in a phone call with Pakistan’s military commanders, Beghari said that ‘either confront the terrorist groups or allow Iranian forces in’.
Iran’s elite Revoutionary Guards on Monday said that he had arrested 3 ‘terrorists’ involved in an suicide attack on security forces last week in its region near Pakistan.
“Safe houses in (the cities of) Saravan and Khash were identified and eliminated, and the terrorists based in them were arrested,” the forces told Sepah news agency of Iran.
The forces also said 150 kilograms of explosives and 600kg of explosive material were recovered from the arrested individuals. The three are accused of monitoring and guiding the vehicle used in carrying out the suicide attack on Iranian security forces.
The attack killed 27 members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards travelling on a bus in the volatile southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan, near the border with Pakistan. The attack was claimed by Jaish-Al-Adl group.
Earlier, Iran’s Foreign Ministry said it cannot ‘tolerate’ Pakistan’s ‘inability to stop cross-border attacks in Iran’. Spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi said that Iran’s frustration has been communicated to Pakistan and they hope Pakistan would take action against such elements.
