Iran threatens Pakistan, Says may cross border

Defence News: Iran on Monday warned Terror factory Pakistan that it has had enough with it’s nuisance. Terrorists often cross Iran and launch attacks on Iranian soil. Jaish-al-Adl claimed responsibility for last month’s attack when 10 Iranian border guards were killed by militants with long-range guns, fired from inside Pakistan. Major General Mohammad Baqeri, the Chief of Iranian Armed Forces said Pakistani terror groups are desperate due to their failure. He said the method was that of “cowardly thieves and bandits” and would only bring the enemies “humiliation and ignominy,” Press TV reported.

National Security and Foreign Policy Commission chairperson Alaeddin Boroujerdi had also made similar allegations against Pakistan last month. “Given that terror cells’ safe haven is located inside Pakistan and they [militants] cross the Islamic Republic of Iran’s borders from there, undoubtedly, the Pakistani government is responsible for the bitter incident and other similar cases,” Tasnim News Agency quoted Boroujerdi as saying.

Major Gen. Baqeri said the land on the Pakistani side has “unfortunately” turned into a haven and training ground for “Saudi-hired terrorists, who enjoy the US endorsement.” The attackers escaped into Pakistani territory just after the attack. The Jaish ul-Adl group claimed responsibility for attacks that killed eight border guards in April 2015 and 14 border guards in October 2013. Baqeri said Iran “cannot accept the continuation of this situation,” further, “We expect the Pakistani officials to control the borders, arrest the terrorists and shut down their bases. “If the terrorist attacks continue, we will hit with crushing blows their safe havens and cells, wherever they are,” he said in a firm tone.

Iran Pakistan border is full of unrest, drug and contraband dealers along with seperatists are enjoying a free run to which Iran wants to put a stop. The last major diplomatic exchange between the coutries was when Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited Pakistan last week.He had asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to improve the border security. Pakistan had then assured Iran it would deploy additional troops along its border. In 2014, Iran had warned with threats to send troops to Pakistan in order to retrieve five Iranian border guards kidnapped by Jaish al Adl. Pakistan at the time warned Iran that such action would be a violation of the international law and that Iranian forces should not cross the border.
