QUETTA: Iranian border guards fired four mortar shells into Pakistani territory in Chedgi area of Balochistan on Saturday.

A senior official of Balochistan government confirmed that Iranian border guards violated the Pakistani frontiers. However, no loss of life was reported in the attack.

Iranian border guards fired eight mortar shells in the same area on October 17. Similarly, a few months ago, mortar shelling from the border killed two people inside the territory.

Areas like Panjgur, Mand, Washuk and Chagai on several instances have constantly witnessed mortar shelling by Iranian security forces.

Pakistan has raised the issue with the Iranian government but Tehran categorically stated that it would target ‘terrorists’ trying to disturb peace in Iran whether they are in Iran or Pakistan.

Separately, on Saturday, two security personnel were injured when their convoy came under attack in Proom area of Panjgur.
