Iran conducts surgical strike in Pakistan, rescues border guards held captive by terror org

Many Indian soldiers from the Indo-Pak war, and ex-Navy Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav are captive in Pakistani prisons. India should carry out such surgical strikes instead of wasteful discussions to free her soldiers.

Tehran (Iran) – Iran, like India, has reportedly conducted a surgical strike in Pakistan. Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) raided the hideouts of the terrorist organisation Jaish ul-Adl and rescued two Iranian border guards. These guards had been held captive for two and half years by this terrorist group. No Iranian soldiers were injured in this operation.

  1. Jaish ul-Adl, is a south-western Pakistan group along Iran border actively carrys out armed attacks in Iran. It has claimed responsibility for the February 2019 attack in Iran, which killed and wounded many Iranian soldiers.
  2. ‘Jaish ul-Adl had, on October 16, 2018, kidnapped 12 IRGC guards and held them captive in the the Pakistani city of Merkava in Balochistan Province, bordering the two countries. A joint committee was formed between Iran and Pakistan to free the soldiers.  The committee secured the release of five soldiers on November 15, 2018, while four more Iranian soldiers were rescued by the Pakistani army on March 21, 2019.
