QUETTA: Four mortar shells fired by the Iranian border forces on Tuesday landed in Balochistan’s bordering district of Panjgur. However, no loss of life or damage to property was reported.

“Three mortar shells landed in open area near Kushak, Surab district of Panjgur,” security sources said.

This was not the first border violation by Iranian border guards this month. A similar incident was reported on July 1.

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.

Pakistan has repeatedly raised the border violation issue with the Iranian government, which has maintained that its forces will continue to target terrorists who are a threat to peace.
