Iran threatens to send troops into Afghanistan to retrieve its citizens



by Joseph Earnest  February 17, 2014


Newscast Media TEHRAN—Iran says it will send forces into Pakistan to free kidnapped border guards if Islamabad does not take measures to secure their release.

Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli was quoted as issuing the warning on February 17.

Fazli's comments come a week after Jaish-ul Adl, a little-known Sunni Islamist Baluch militant group, published pictures on its Facebook page it said were of the soldiers kidnapped in Iran's southeast province of Sistan-Baluchistan.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry reportedly summoned Pakistan's charge d'affaires, demanding that Islamabad "act firmly against the leaders and members of the terrorist group who have fled into Pakistan."


Press TV has also reported, Iran has warned that it will take matters in its own hands and enter Afghanistan's deep territory to establish security, if the country doesn't secure its borders. (pop-up)

Jaish-ul Adl militants said in November 2013 they assassinated a local Iranian prosecutor, and in October ambushed border guards, killing 14.
