Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Major General has accused Pakistan’s security forces of supporting the perpetrators of a suicide bombing that killed 27 troops on Wednesday.
Mohammad Ali Jafari made the remarks in Isfahan City on Friday evening during a farewell ceremony held for those killed.
Referring to terrorist group, Jaish alAdl, the Major General said Pakistan’s government, which has housed these anti-revolutionaries and threats to Islam, knows where they are. He said they are supported by Pakistan’s security forces.
He warned if the Pakistan government does not punish them, they will retaliate against this anti-revolutionary force, and whatever Pakistan sees will be the consequence of its support for them.
The Wednesday bombing targeted a busload of Revolutionary Guards in the volatile southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan, which straddles the border with Pakistan. The attack was one of the deadliest on Iranian security forces in recent years and came just days after Iran held more than a week of celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the lslamic Revolution, which overthrew the US-backed shah.
