Four Iranian soldiers recovered near Pak-Afghan border: ISPR


RAWALPINDI: Four abducted Iranian soldiers were recovered from a “transitioning hideout” during an operation in Chagai district of Balochistan.
According the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the security forces conducted a successful intelligence-based operation (IBO) at Amori in Chagai district, about 3-4 kilometres away from the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
“Terrorists of proscribed organisation were reported to have entered Pakistan from Afghanistan side along with abducted Iranian soldiers,” the military’s media wing said.
“After [an] exchange of fire, 4 Iranian soldiers [were] recovered from a transitioning hideout,” it said, adding that the soldiers are being handed over to Iranian authorities.
In November last year, Pakistani security forces had safely recovered five of the 12 Iranian border guards who were abducted by militants the previous month from Lulakdan area near the Pak-Iran border.
