Pakistan threatened the Islamic Republic of Iran with “serious consequences” on Wednesday after Iran fired missiles and drones into the country that it claimed were aimed at militant bases near the border.

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.

Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said that the attack resulted “in [the] death of two innocent children while injuring three girls,” adding that the violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty was “completely unacceptable and can have serious consequences.”

“It is even more concerning that this illegal act has taken place despite the existence of several channels of communication between Pakistan and Iran,” the statement said. “Pakistan’s strong protest has already been lodged with the concerned senior official in the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tehran. Additionally, the Iranian Charge d’affaires has been called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to convey our strongest condemnation of this blatant violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and that the responsibility for the consequences will lie squarely with Iran.”

Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani told his counterpart in Iran on Wednesday that the incident has caused “serious damage to bilateral ties between Pakistan and Iran” and that Pakistan reserves the right “to respond to this provocative act.”


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.”
