Iran ready for joint action with Pakistan to free abducted guards: IRGC Commander

In Oct. 16, Commander of the Islamic Revolution 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.

During the trip, Pakpour is supposed to investigate issues related to releasing Iranian border guards and to discuss taking joint and firm measures against terrorism and maintaining sustainable border security with Pakistan military and security officials, the General noted.

Fourteen Basij (volunteer forces) and border guard forces were abducted by terrorists in Iran's Sistan-Baluchestan border with Pakistan on October 15 morning, an informed source said earlier.

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

The Iranian military forces along the southeastern border areas are frequently attacked by terrorist groups coming from Afghanistan and Pakistan.

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

In Oct. 16, the IRGC has confirmed that 14 Baseej (volunteers) and border guards were kidnapped by a terrorist group on Tuesday morning. The incident happened about 50 kilometers from the town of MirJaveh in Balouchestan of southeastern Iran, very close to the border with Pakistan.
