Iran tightens security along border with Pakistan

TEHRAN: Iran has begun constructing 120 watch posts along its eastern border areas in a bid to tighten security along Pakistan border, a security official said.

The move comes after recent attacks against Iranian border guards by the Sunni rebels.

In order to step up the security along the country’s eastern borders, the police are building the watch posts and a 120-km road in cooperation with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), brigadier general Esmail Ahmadi-Moqaddam was quoted as saying by China’s state news agency.

The IRGC announced on Friday its forces will undertake the security of the 300-km border in the southeastern city of Saravan in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan province.

On February 6, Jaish ul Adl abducted five Iranian border guards in Jakigour region in the Iranian province of Sistan-Balochistan and allegedly took them across the border to Pakistan. Later, the militant group claimed that it had killed one of the five Iranian soldiers, Jamshid Danaeifar.

On Tuesday, Iran held Pakistan accountable for the grave incident and called on Islamabad to take serious and prompt action to arrest those terrorists and guarantee the release of the Iranian soldiers.

On the other hand, the Pakistani prime minister’s advisor on foreign affairs and national security Sartaj Aziz said in an interview with a private news channel that there is no information of abducted Iranian Border Guards being brought to Pakistan.

The advisor said that Iran was leveling allegations against Pakistan but was not providing any evidence pertaining to the guards being brought to Pakistan. He said that if the need arose Pakistan was willing to conduct a joint operation with Iran. “If there is information it should be shared with us.”
