PESHAWAR, 9 May: Iranian army chief Major General Mohammad Baqeri has warned to target militants inside Pakistan who were carrying cross-border attacks.

According to media reports, the Iranian military chief said Iran will go after the ‘safe havens’ of militants anywhere if action was not taken against them by Pakistan.

Ten Iranian border guards were killed by militants last month allegedly in an attack from the Pakistan side. Iran alleged that Jaish al Adl, a militant group, had shot the guards with long-range guns, fired from inside Pakistan.

Major General Baqeri hoped that Pakistani officials will control the border situation and will also dismantle their hideouts after their arrest. He said Iran cannot accept continuation of this situation.

Earlier, Iran defence minister General Hossein Dehqhan had stated that Iran reserves the right to take action against militants who attacked its guards in the Pak-Iran border area.
