Pakistan sent a protest letter to Iran on Saturday demanding action against Tehran-based “terrorists” involved in recent targeted killing of its 14 security personnel, mostly from the Pakistan Navy.
Unidentified gunmen donning uniforms of paramilitary soldiers Thursday massacred 14 passengers after forcing them to disembark from buses on a highway in the restive Balochistan province.
According to the letter sent by the Foreign Office (FO) to Iran, at least 14 personnel belonging to the Armed Forces of Pakistan were offloaded from buses on April 18 in Oramra area of Balochistan and killed.
The Foreign Office said the “terrorists” belonging to Baloch nationalist groups were operating from a border region in Iran and has asked Tehran to take action against them.
“BRAS, which is an alliance of three Baloch terrorist organizations, has claimed responsibility for this terrorist act,” it said.
