  • Pakistan FM SPOX:  5 abducted Iranian guards delivered

“With concerted efforts of the Pakistani LEAs and armed forces, 5 abducted Iranian guards have been safely delivered,” said Foreign Office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal in a Twitter post.

Asia: “They are in good health, being handed over to Iranian authorities,” the spokesperson added. “Concerted efforts under vigilance of the military leadership are on, to recover the other guards,” Iran Press reported.

On the same day,  commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps Major General Mohammad-Ali Jaafari says Pakistan-based terrorists have released 5 of the 12 Iranian border guards kidnapped last month.

Meanwhile, the IRGC chief said "no arrogant power like the US and even more stronger than the Americans could not overcome the Islamic Republic of Iran as long as the culture of martyrdom enjoys such a credibility in the nation's logic."

The forty-year history of the 1979 Islamic Revolution is filled with the US consecutive defeats when dealing with the Iranian people’s determination and the victory over the hegemonic system, the commander said.

Jafari lauded Iranian martyrs as the source of spiritual life and prosperity to the society.

The 12 forces were kidnapped in mid-October by elements of the so-called Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group near the town of Mirjaveh in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.  203/103
