Pakistan Recalls Envoy, Bars Tehran Ambassador After Cross-Border Attack

A day after Iranian drones and missiles blasted the region of Balochistan, Pakistan on Wednesday recalled its ambassador to Iran. Furthermore, the Iranian ambassador to Pakistan has been requested to stay in Iran for now and not return.

Iran had reportedly targeted two Jaish ul-Adl bases in Pakistan’s volatile Balochistan province late on Tuesday night, according to reports. Pakistan confirmed the assault, stating that the attacks resulted in the deaths of 2 children and the injuries of 3.

The incident was strongly condemned by Pakistan’s Foreign Office, which described it as an “unprovoked violation of its airspace” by Iran. “Pakistan vehemently protests the violation of its sovereignty,” the Foreign Office said, adding that it was “completely unacceptable” and may have “serious consequences”.

Pakistan claimed it strongly protested a senior official in the Iranian Foreign Ministry in Tehran, denouncing Iran’s strikes as an “illegal act”. In response to the event, Islamabad also called the Iranian Charge d’Affaires.

Previous attacks on Iranian security troops in the Pakistani border region were carried out by Jaish ul-Adl, according to reports.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards launched missile attacks against sites in Syria and Iraq on Monday.
