Iran on Tuesday "obliterated two key strongholds" of a terror group in Pakistan through precision missile and drone strikes, a media report said.
Significant bases belonging to the Jaysh al-Dhulm (Jeysh al-Adl) terrorist group on Pakistani soil were destroyed on Tuesday, Tasnim news agency reported, adding that these bases were "specifically targeted and successfully demolished" by a combination of missile and drone attacks.
The focal point of this operation was the region known as Kouh-Sabz (green mountain) in the Balochistan province of Pakistan, recognized as one of the largest hubs for the Jeysh al-Dhulm militants, the Iranian news agency reported.
According to Iranian media, the terrorist group was responsible for the attack on a police station last month in Sistan and Balouchestan province's city of Rask, southeast of Iran, which resulted in the martyrdom of 11 Iranian Police forces.
The Pakistani Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that two children were killed and three girls were injured in the country due to Iran's violation of Pakistan's airspace.
Pakistan strongly condemns the "unprovoked violation" of its airspace by Iran, the ministry said in a statement, adding that this violation of its sovereignty is "completely unacceptable and can have serious consequences", Xinhua news agency reported.
Pakistan's strong protest has already been lodged with the concerned senior official in the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tehran, said the statement.
It is even more concerning that this illegal act has taken place despite the existence of several channels of communication between Pakistan and Iran, it added.
Additionally, the Iranian charge d'affaires has been called to the Pakistani Foreign Ministry to convey Pakistan's strongest condemnation of this blatant violation of its sovereignty and that the "responsibility for the consequences will lie squarely with Iran," the statement said.
Pakistan has always said terrorism is a common threat to all countries in the region that requires coordinated action, said the statement.
"Such unilateral acts are not in conformity with good neighbourly relations and can seriously undermine bilateral trust and confidence," the statement said.
Iranian media on Tuesday reported that Iran "obliterated two key strongholds" of a terror group in Pakistan through precision missile and drone strikes.
