QUETTA: Three mortar shells fired by Iranian border forces landed in the border town of Panjgur late Monday night. However, no loss of life or damage to property was reported.

According to security officials, Iranian border guards fired three mortar shells late Monday night which landed in Panjgur without injuring anyone. “One shell landed near a graveyard in Killi Nakar and two others exploded in the Gor Kadan area,” a security official told The Express Tribune.

This is not the first time Iranian border guards violated the border. Pakistan has repeatedly raised the issue with the Iranian government which in response has said its forces will continue to target terrorists who are a threat to Iran’s peace whether they are in Iran or Pakistan.

Earlier in April eight Iranian border guards were killed in an ambush by armed men near the Pakistan-Iran border. Sectarian outfit Jaish al Adl had claimed responsibility for the attack.
