On October 16, Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said Iran is ready for joint operations with the Pakistani army to secure the release of border guards who have been kidnapped on the Iranian side of the border with Pakistan.

The incident happened about 50 kilometers from the town of MirJaveh in Balouchestan of southeastern Iran, very close to the border with Pakistan.

The IRGC is tasked with protecting the country’s northwestern and southeastern borders.

Tehran has frequently asked the two neighbouring countries to step up security at the common border to prevent terrorist attacks on Iranian forces.

Pakistan-based Jeish al-Adl terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the abductions.
