According to Iran Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, a “Iranian terrorist group” was the target of this week’s airstrikes in Pakistan that claimed the lives of two youngsters.

On the fringes of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Abdollahian stated on Wednesday, “On Pakistan, none of the nationals of the friendly and brotherly country of Pakistan were targeted by Iranian missiles and drones.”

He continued, “The objective was the so-called Jaish al-Adl group, an Iranian terrorist organization.

According to Amir-Abdollahian, the group’s recent strikes on the Iranian city of Rask in the southeast province of Sistan-Baluchistan prompted the attack on “Pakistan’s soil.”

The group has sought refuge in several areas of the Balochistan region of Pakistan. On this subject, we’ve had multiple conversations with Pakistani officials,” he stated.

The speaker emphasized that although Iran acknowledged Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, it would not permit the nation’s security to be jeopardized or manipulate.

An armed Sunni Muslim organization called Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice) has attacked Iranian security personnel near the Pakistani border in the past.

Following the deaths of two children due to an airspace violation, Pakistan earlier pulled back its ambassador to Iran.

Pakistan did not specify the type of violation or its location, but the spokesperson for the foreign ministry declared in a statement on Wednesday that it was “unacceptable” and a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty.

She declared, “Pakistan reserves the right to respond to this illegal act.”

The official for the ministry also stated that Iran’s ambassador, who is now visiting his native country, will not be permitted to return to Islamabad.

Officials in the Balochistan province of southwest Pakistan reported that four missiles had struck the Panjgur district near the Iranian border.

“In the village of Koh-i-Sabaz, approximately 50 km [30 miles] within Pakistani territory, four missiles were fired,” a senior Panjgur administration official, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Reuters news agency.

“Three houses and a mosque were damaged in the attack,” stated another official.

According to the authorities, three more family members had been hurt and two small daughters had died.

The strikes occurred one day after Tehran conducted comparable operations inside Syria and Iraq, two other nearby nations.

Additionally, Baghdad summoned its ambassador from Tehran following reports by Iranian state media that they had struck an Israeli spy center.
