QUETTA: Less than a week after the formation of a Pakistan-Iran committee to check border violations and terrorist activities, Iranian border guards fired mortar shells into Pakistani territory on Wednesday.

“Iranian border guards fired two mortar shells which landed near Peshuk check post in Panjgur,” a local official confirmed to The Express Tribune. Such violations continue unabated even though the matter was taken up with the Iranian diplomatic mission and their border security officials, he added.

The official revealed that Iranian border guards fired five rockets in the same area on Monday but the incident was not reported to the media considering the sensitivity of the Pakistan-Iran relationship. “There were no casualties, though,” he added.

On Friday, the joint border commission agreed on joint efforts for tracking down the five Iranian guards, who were allegedly abducted near the Pakistani border earlier this month.
