Iran attacks terror bases in Pakistan’s Balochistan

Islamabad: Pakistan’s caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar ul Haq Kakar had met Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, just before Iran fired missiles at Balochistan.

According to The Express Tribune newspaper, the Iranian president’s point man for Afghanistan was also in Islamabad recently.

Pakistan on Wednesday warned Iran of “serious consequences” after Tehran launched an unprecedented missile and drone strikes on terrorist bases of a Sunni militant group in the restive Balochistan province, which killed two children and injured three others.

Two bases of Balochi militant group Jaish al Adl in Pakistan were targeted by missiles on Tuesday, Iranian state media reported, a day after Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards attacked targets in Iraq and Syria with missiles.

Iran’s attack could potentially raise tensions in the Middle East, already roiled by Israel’s war on Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Claiming that the area targeted is called “Green Mountain”, the agency said that the bases were targeted by a combination of missile and drone attacks.

Tehran has repeatedly warned that the Jaish al-Adl militant group is using Pakistani soil in the border town of Panjgur in Balochistan to launch terror attacks on Iranian security forces.

The strikes were launched the day Pakistan’s caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar met with the Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on the sidelines of the WEF.
