As if the India surgical strike was not enough, Pakistan had to deal with Iran border forces firing three mortar shells into Balochistan area of Pakistan on Wednesday.

Creating panic among the local population, two of the shells landed near Frontier Corps checkpost, while the third landed at Killi Karim Dad.

A provincial government official was quoted by Dawn News as saying: “Mortar shells fired by Iranian border guards landed in the district of Panjgoor.”

However, no causalities have been reported, Pakistan media report revealed.

The Indian Army on Wednesday had carried out surgical strikes against terrorist launch pads across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

According to the Army, the latest strike was in order to prevent attacks being planned by Pakistan-based militants and the forces killed more than 40 terrorists.

Following the attack from Iran boarder, Pakistan’s Frontier Corps personnel reached the site to initiate investigations and also the security forces tightened security at the border, officials said.

Pakistan shares a 900-km long territory of Balochistan with Iran. Both the countries have clashed earlier over terror attacks in the border area.

In 2014, both the countries decided to improve intelligence coordination to wipe out terrorists from the border region.
