Iran launches aerial strikes on two terrorist bases in Pakistan, Islamabad claims 'unprovoked violation' of airspace killed two children

Iran on Tuesday claimed it conducted missile and drone attacks which destroyed two strongholds of the terrorist group Jaish al-Adl in the border town of Panjgur in Pakistan's Balochistan region, prompting protest from the neighbouring nation.

"Two key strongholds of the Jaysh al-Dhulm (Jeysh al-Adl) terrorist group in Pakistan have been obliterated through precision missile and drone strikes," reported Iran's Tasnim News Agency.

Last month, members of the terror group allegedly stormed a police station in Sistan and Balouchestan province’s city of Rask, southeast of Iran, which resulted in the death of 11 Iranian Police forces.

Pakistan condemns

Pakistan condemned Iran for violating Pakistan’s sovereignty and claimed two children were killed in the attack.

In its statement, Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: "Pakistan strongly condemns the unprovoked violation of its airspace by Iran and the strike inside Pakistani territory which resulted in the death of two innocent children while injuring three girls."

"This violation of Pakistan's sovereignty is completely unacceptable and can have serious consequences," it said.

Pakistan described Iran's action as an 'illegal act'.
