Iran Strikes Jaish al-Adl Bases in Pakistan with Drones and Missiles

Iran launched a targeted offensive against Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice) in Pakistan, destroying two significant bases of the terrorist group, as reported by Al Arabiya News citing Tasnim News Agency.

The strikes were concentrated in Balochistan region of Pakistan, where one of Jaish al-Adl's largest headquarters was located, resulting in substantial damage.

Jaish al-Adl, established in 2012 and designated as a terrorist organization by Iran, is a Sunni extremist group operating in Iran's southeastern Sistan-Baluchistan province. The organization has a history of launching attacks on Iranian security forces, including a recent attack on a police station in December that claimed the lives of at least 11 personnel.

Sistan-Baluchistan, bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan, frequently witnesses clashes between Iran's security forces and Sunni terrorists, along with challenges from drug smugglers. The region, predominantly inhabited by Sunni ethnic Baluchis, is one of Iran's economically disadvantaged areas.

These attacks in Pakistan come a day after Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps launched missiles into Iraq's Kurdistan region, targeting what they referred to as an Israeli "spy headquarters" and alleged ISIS-linked targets in Syria.
