Iranian security forces kidnapped on Pakistan border

Illustrative

Militants in Iran abducted 14 members of a border security force near the Pakistan border on Tuesday in the latest blow to the powerful Revolutionary Guard.

An Iranian official said the servicemen had been captured by terrorists from the Lulakdan border area in the country's southeast.

However, the head of the Guards' ground forces, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, said on Tuesday that Iran was ready to conduct joint military operations with Pakistan to release the kidnapped personnel.

The region has always been a flashpoint, with Baluchi separatists and extremists based in Pakistan regularly attacking Iranian security posts.

He said the attack was a retaliation for what he called Iranian state's oppression against Sunni people in Sistan-Baluchestan, a mainly Sunni province that has a long history of unrest from separatist terrorists.

Of the 14, two were members of the elite Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit, and seven were volunteers in the Basij militia involved in "a security operation".

The area has seen occasional clashes between Iranian forces and Baluch separatists, as well as drug traffickers.

"The Pakistani government should immediately implement all necessary means and measures to free border guards of the Islamic Republic of Iran and arrest the wicked terrorists", Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Tuesday.

Jaish al-Adl kidnapped five Iranian border guards in 2014, releasing four of them two months later after mediation by local Sunni clerics.

The so-called Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group - which is based in Pakistan -claimed responsibility on its Twitter account.

Iran has alleged that the group has received support from the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia, with the complicity of Pakistan.

The FO said: "Both militaries, under a joint mechanism established since past year, are working to ascertain the whereabouts of Iranian guards".

"No effort will be spared to assist our Iranian brothers in finding the Iranian guards", the statement added.
