Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Maj-Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari has said Pakistan’s security forces are supporting the perpetrators of a suicide bombing that killed 27 troops on Wednesday.
He said, Pakistan government knows where the anti-revolutionaries are.
A busload of Revolutionary Guards was hit on Wednesday in a bombing target in the volatile southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan, which straddles the border with Pakistan.
Mohammad Ali Jafari was speaking in Isfahan City on Friday evening during a farewell ceremony held for those killed.
He said they are supported by Pakistan’s security forces.
He said, if the Pakistan government does not punish them they will retaliate against the anti-revolutionary force.
He also warned, Pakistan will see the consequence of its support for the militant groups.
Reportedly, the militant group Jaish al-Adl, the Iranian Maj-Gen was talking about was formed in 2012 as a successor to the extremist group Jundallah (“Soldiers of God”).
Jundallah waged a deadly insurgency for a decade.
Tehran captured and executed its leader Abdolmalek Rigi in 2010 that severely weakened the organization.
Jafari’s comments came ahead of a two-day visit by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Pakistan.
