  • Militants kill 10 Iranian border guards in attack on frontier with Pakistan

The Iranian Foreign Ministry also summoned Pakistan's ambassador to Iran to convey the Islamic Republic's strong protest to the Pakistani government.

Iran denies the claim.The group killed eight border guards in 2015 and 14 border guards two years earlier.

While Tehran says it honors its commitments to provide Islamabad with secure borders, it laments that the Pakistan side is falling short of its reciprocal commitments.

Media reported, citing Iranian police, that the border guards had been killed by long-range weapons fired from Pakistani soil.

Iran's border with Pakistan has always been plagued by terrorist incursions in spite of security agreements with Islamabad, including one memorandum of understanding signed in 2014.
