“Pakistan Launches Military Strikes on Terrorist Hideouts in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchistan Province, Affirming Commitment to Sovereignty and Confirming Terrorist Casualties in Operation ‘Marg Bar Sarmachar.'”
In response to longstanding concerns about the presence of Pakistani origin terrorists, self-identifying as “Sarmachars,” operating from safe havens within Iran’s ungoverned spaces, Pakistan executed a decisive action backed by credible intelligence.
This morning’s operation, rooted in a commitment to safeguard national security, aimed to counteract the anticipated large-scale terrorist activities by these groups. Pakistan’s successful execution of this intricate operation underscores the professionalism of its Armed Forces and their unwavering determination to defend the country against all threats. Emphasizing the sacrosanct nature of the safety and security of its people, Pakistan pledges to take all necessary steps in this regard.
While the Iranian authorities have not immediately acknowledged the strikes, the military action by Pakistan follows Iran’s claim of targeting the Jaish al-Adl terrorist headquarters in Balochistan, an incident that allegedly resulted in casualties, including the death of two children and injuries to two others.
