“The IRGC Ground Force is active in Southeastern, Northwestern and Western Iran, but as other commanders have announced, the IRGC plays an advisory role in these countries,” Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Ground Force Brigadier General Abdollah Araqi told reporters in Tehran on Saturday.
Elaborating on the IRGC’s presence in the Southeastern parts of the country, he said thanks to the security measures of the IRGC, police, intelligence and political forces, terrorist groups who used to conduct their operations from inside the Southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan are now headquartered across the border.
Araqi referred to the recent terrorist attack in Saravan, a border town near Pakistan, for which Islamabad was held accountable due to its lax control over the borders with Iran, and said the IRGC Ground Force has provided the foreign and interior ministries with substantiating proof and evidence on terrorists’ infiltration from Pakistan.
Four Iranian police officers, including a conscript, were killed in two terrorist attacks on a border post in the Southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan earlier this month.
The tragic event took place in the vicinity of the city of Saravan near the border with Pakistan.
Last Saturday, the Iranian interior ministry held Islamabad accountable for the terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of several policemen in Southeastern Iran recently.
“We don’t expect the Pakistani government (to allow) the terrorist operations will be held against Iran from the Pakistani soil,” Interior Ministry Spokesman Hossein Ali Amiri told reporters in Tehran.
He called on the Iranian foreign ministry to take more active measures in contacts with Islamabad to make the Muslim neighboring state in order not to allow their country become a launchpad for terrorist operations against Iran.
Yet, the spokesman said the terrorist attacks did not have any military value as they were only some hit-and-run operations by the terrorists who sneak into Iran from a neighboring state, carry out terrorist operations and then escape to the same country.
Amiri called for Pakistan’s serious cooperation in preventing terrorists’ infiltration into the Iranian soil, and said, “The Pakistani government should be held accountable for the terrorist operations.”
In response, the Pakistani officials asked Iran to provide Islamabad with documents showing that the terrorists had sneaked into Iran through Pakistan’s border.
