Iran has warned Pakistan to crack down on terror outfit Jaish al-Adl or they will take action based on international law.

A suicide attack by the armed group killed 27 members of elite security force in the border province of Sistan-Baluchestan.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander-in-Chief Mohammad Ali Jafari said Pakistan need to take action against Jaish al-Adl immediately before Tehran takes the revenge of the terror attack.

The warning of Iran comes in such a time when Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is on a visit to Pakistan to hold talks with prime minister and top officials.

Meanwhile, Tehran-based journalist Reza Khaasteh said Jafari’s statement is harsh and directly is blaming Pakistan for the suicide attack.

Mizan Online editor-in-chief Mohammad Farahani pointed out Jafari just warned Pakistan and not accused the country.

He added, “He doesn’t mean Pakistan is supporting the terrorists. He has warned them to be more serious about the situation, because these terrorists are using Pakistan as a shelter. Pakistan officials must do much more to secure the border.”

Iran shares about 1,000km border with Pakistan and the Jaish al-Adl has been launching such attacks against Iranian border security guards for years. Its parent group is al-Qaeda-affiliated Jundullah.

Last October the armed group abducted a dozen of Iranian security personnel near Zahedan along the Iran-Pakistan border.
