Iran attack on pakistan

11 min read

On Tuesday, Iran admitted that they carried out an attack on western Pakistan using missiles and drones.

Two children have been killed and three more have been injured in an attack in Balochistan, according to officials in Islamabad.

In statements to the Press, Iran’s foreign minister said that the operation was targeting Jaish al-Adl, which he called an “Iranian terrorist group” based in Pakistan.

It was as a result of this incident that Pakistan’s government recalled its ambassador to Iran and put a block on Tehran’s envoy’s return to his country.

After Iran launched attacks on targets in Iraq and Syria earlier this week, the Balochistan attack comes as a shock.

In a statement in response to the attack, Islamabad described it as “illegal” and warned of “serious consequences”.

It should be noted, however, that in Davos Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian maintained that the only targets were Jaish al-Adl members and not Pakistani citizens.

Having said that, Mr Amir-Abdollahian stated that they had targeted Iranian terrorists only on the ground in Pakistan.

His statement also stated that he had spoken to his Pakistani counterpart and reassured him that his country and his homeland are respected in their sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In a time where tensions throughout the Middle East are increasing, Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian group that controls Gaza, resumed hostilities a couple of days ago following a latest air strike.

There are reports that Tehran does not want to become involved in a wider conflict in the region. But there are a number of groups in its so-called “Axis of Resistance”, which are involved in attacks on Israel and its allies, in order to demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinians, including Houthis militants in Yemen, Hezbollah militia in Lebanon, and a number of groups in Syria and Iraq. After the Houthis attacked a number of commercial ships, the United States and the United Kingdom launched air strikes on the Houthis.

It has been reported that China has made a strong appeal to Pakistan and Iran on Wednesday to display “restraint” and “avoid actions that could lead to an escalation of tensions.”. According to Mao Ning, the spokesperson for the foreign ministry, the two countries are “close neighbors.”.

Iran seems intent on taking revenge on those it believes are responsible for the recent deadly attacks on its own soil, perhaps as a result of the recent deadly attacks.

With regional tensions escalating, Iran is keen on portraying strength and demonstrating to its own population that it will not tolerate acts of violence and that it will not tolerate violence from others in the region.

There was a strike in Pakistan on Tuesday which targeted a village in the vast south-western border province of Balochistan. As per Tehran’s statement, an ethnic Baloch Sunni Muslim group by the name of Jaish al-Adl, or the “army of justice”, is slated for attack by the Iranian government, even as the group has carried out attacks against the Pakistani government forces inside the country.

A police station located near the Pakistani border in the town of Rask was attacked by Jaish al-Adl last December.

It was just two weeks ago, when two bombs exploded in Kerman, Iran’s third largest city, killing 84 people who were attending a ceremony to commemorate the US assassination of Iran’s notorious Revolutionary Guard general, Qasem Soleimani, who served as an advisor to the Supreme Leader of the Revolutionary Guard Corps.

A missile was fired by Iran on Monday into Syria and a part of northern Iraq controlled by the Kurds. During the Kerman bombings last month, Iran claimed that it would target the Islamic State and Israel’s Mossad spy agency, which it claimed had been involved in the attacks.

The strike against Iraq took place near the northern city of Irbil in the northern part of the country. The attacks resulted in the deaths of four civilians and the injury of six others, according to local authorities. As a result of the attack, the United States condemned it.

Idlib, Syria’s last remaining opposition stronghold, was then struck by the Iranian air force along with 2.9 million displaced people who had fled the country to the north-western Idlib province.

It is undoubtedly a dramatic escalation for the United States to strike its nuclear-armed neighbor in the east, Pakistan. In a statement, Pakistan expressed its outrage over the attacks, saying it occurred despite the fact that the two countries have several channels of communication in place.

According to Islamabad’s announcement on Wednesday, the Iranian ambassador will not be allowed back into the country for the time being, as the country has recalled its ambassador to Iran.

In spite of the delicate nature of their relationship, Pakistan and Iran maintain cordial relations. There was no coincidence that this attack took place on the same day when the Prime Minister of Pakistan and the Foreign Minister of Iran were meeting in Davos, as well as during the joint military drills of the Iranian and Pakistani navies in the Gulf.

In spite of this, both countries have been accusing one another of harbouring militant groups over the years that have carried out attacks on the neighbouring country in its border regions.

For a long time, both countries have been concerned about security along their shared border, which runs for about 900 km (559 miles) along either side of the border.

A missile attack by the Iranians has been reported to have hit Sabz Koh village, which is approximately 45 kilometers away from the Iranian border and 90 kilometers away from Panjgur, the nearest town. According to local officials, it is a sparsely populated part of the country and home to livestock-owning Baloch tribes that smuggle goods, drugs and weapons in and out of the country.

Across the border, people believe that they are deprived of basic necessities, they are discriminated against, and they are encroaching on their own resources in order to achieve their goals.

Baloch separatist groups in Pakistan continue an insurgent movement against the government in Pakistan as they complain of discrimination against their minority Sunni Muslim majority in the Shia Muslim-majority state of Iran.

There are a number of Sunni militant groups operating in Sistan-Baluchestan, which include Jaish al-Adl, which according to the office of the Director of National Intelligence is the “most active and influential” militant group operating in it. There is no doubt that Washington and Tehran consider it to be a terrorist organization.

Similarly, Aamir Rana, who is one of Pakistan’s most prominent security commentators, told the BBC that he thought the diplomatic crisis was one that would take a while to calm down, but Pakistan is also not keen on an escalation of the situation.

“Historically Pakistan has always ignored Iranian actions on its border with Pakistan – but now that Iran is in the driving seat, whether it wants to comply or not, it is up to Iran to decide whether or not it will comply.” he said.
