The Islamic Republic of Iran launched missiles and drones in an attack Tuesday on an anti-Iranian militant group inside Pakistan — a nuclear-armed country — in a move that threatens to rapidly increase already inflamed tensions in the region.

The strikes reportedly targeted two bases of the militant group Jaish al-Adl after it mounted attacks against Iranian forces on the Pakistan-Iran border.

The Associated Press noted that Iran and Pakistan have long viewed each other with suspicion and that the strike could send relations between the two countries spiraling.

Iran’s attacks inside Pakistan came only a day after it launched strikes inside Syria and Iraq, one of which was very close to the U.S. Consulate in Erbil, Iraq.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) claimed that they were targeting the “headquarters of spies” and “anti-Iranian terrorist gatherings in parts of the region”. The IRGC claimed the facilities it targeted belonged to Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency. Iran claimed that Mossad was behind “terrorist activities in the region,” which is false.

Several people were killed in the attacks, according to ABC News. No American casualties were reported.


The attacks come after Iran has activated its proxies throughout the region to launch more than 120 attacks against U.S. forces since October 17, just a little over a week after Hamas murdered 1,200+ Israelis in an unprecedented terrorist attack.

Other Iranian proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas, have continued launching attacks against Israel while the Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen have launched dozens of attacks against merchant ships in international waters in the Red Sea.
