Iran’s Basij (volunteer) forces clashed with the members of Jeish al-Adl terrorist group in the country’s Sistan- Balouchestan near the border with Pakistan, killing a number of them and forcing others to flee.The clashes between the volunteer forces and terrorists erupted when the terrorists tried to penetrate into Askan region near the border with Pakistan, leaving at least 4 terrorists dead and many others injured, FNA reported.

Other terrorists had to flee to Pakistan after they sustained heavy casualties.In April, Commander of the Iranian Border Guards Brigadier General Qassem Rezayee urged Pakistan to stop terrorists’ cross-border attacks from its soil and adopt practical measures in tightening their lax security control over borders with Iran.

He reported over 70 cases of border clashes with the terrorists and drug traffickers last year, and said, “Whenever these clashes happen Pakistan is to blame for them.” The bordering areas between Iran and Pakistan have witnessed some insecurities in recent years.
