Iranian MP says Pakistan has become a safe haven for terrorist cells

In a visit to the southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan, Boroujerdi expressed deep sorrow over the deaths of 10 Iranian border guards in a recent terrorist attack that was launched from inside Pakistan.

Given that terror cells' safe haven is located inside Pakistan and they (terrorists) cross the Islamic Republic of Iran's borders from there, undoubtedly, the Pakistani government is responsible for the bitter incident and other similar cases, the parliamentarian said.

He further emphasized that as Islamabad practically lacks the ability to control its borders, Iranian forces have the right to take the necessary actions and respond to such attacks.

Takfiri militants shot to death 10 Iranian border guards who were patrolling on the frontier with Pakistan on Wednesday.

The Iranian troops were martyred in an ambush by the terrorists in Mirjaveh in the Iran-Pakistan border's zero-point.

A terrorist group calling itself Jaish al-Adl has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency late on Wednesday, Spokesman for the Iranian Police Brigadier General Saeed Montazer-al-Mahdi said the border guards were killed by long-range weapons firing from inside Pakistan.

The Pakistani government is to blame for the incident and they should be accountable for it, he added.

The source said that a number of terrorists were killed, others were injured and 3 command centers, 2 machinegun nests were destroyed due to the operations.

In the northern countryside of the province, the source added that army units destroyed 6 vehicles, one of them equipped with heavy machinegun, and a bulldozer for terrorist groups during the army's strikes on their gatherings and movement axes in al-Hrak town and al-Rajom village to the south of al-Wardat village in al-Lajat area northern Daraa city.

Meanwhile,the army units clashed with terrorist groups of ISIS in the direction of al-Tharda/Factories in Deir Ezzor, according to military source.
