LONDON (Reuters) - A senior Revolutionary Guards commander said on Wednesday that Iran response to a suicide attack that killed 27 soldiers in southeastern region will not be limited to Iranian borders.
Iranian authorities say the Sunni group Jaish al Adl, which claimed responsibility for the attack, operate from safe havens in Pakistan and have repeatedly called on the neighbouring country to crack down on them.
Reacting to the suicide attack in Sistan-Baluchistan province, Revolutionary Guards commander Ali Fadavi was quoted as saying by Fars news agency “our response in defence of the Islamic Revolution will not be limited to our borders... The enemies will receive a very firm response from the Revolutionary Guards like before.”
