Iran border guards on Thursday fired three mortar shells into Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province, triggering panic among the local population.

“Mortar shells fired by Iranian border guards landed in the district of Panjgoor,” a provincial government official said.

Two of the shells landed near Frontier Corps check-post, while the third landed at Killi Karim Dad, the Dawn quoted the official as saying.

No property or human loss was reported in the shelling.

Locals panicked as a result of the attack, and Frontier Corps personnel reached the site to initiate investigations.

Security forces tightened security at the border after the incident.

Pakistan shares a 900-kilometre porous border with Iran and the two countries in 2014 decided to boost intelligence coordination to wipe out terrorists from the border region.

    Iran and stan are very good friends, so, Iran as a country may not have launched missile strikes. The launch could be the handiwork of Balochi freedom fighters.

      It is time Bharat stands on her hind legs. And the Bharat did. US Chinese stanis are allies in terror to great extent.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Lessons learned are 'protect and prosper'. Bharat must carry military exercises in its own territories occupied by enemies or not.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Slowly the fear that is to be feared is taking hold of Hindu psyche. Don't run and tuck your tail if enemies take off their panty hoses.Islam of Muhammad will always be together so stop crying.
