Iran conducted surgical strike on Pakistan terror outfit, frees two soldiers

Iran has reportedly conducted a 'surgical strike' in Pakistan this week and rescued its imprisoned men from the country.

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) freed two of its soldiers in an intelligence operation inside Pakistan, the force said in a statement.

The IRGC Ground Force's Quds Base in Southeastern Iran said in the statement that two of its border guards were freed in a successful intelligence operation on Tuesday night.

"A successful operation was carried out last Tuesday night to rescue two kidnapped border guards who were taken as hostages by Jaish ul-Adl organization two and a half years ago," the IRGC said in its statement.

The soldiers, according to the statement, were successfully transferred back to Iran.

A Pakistan-based radical Wahhabi terrorist group 'Jaish ul-Adl' had on October 16, 2018, kidnapped 12 IRGC guards to the Pakistani territory in the city of Merkava in Sistan and Baluchestan Province on the border between the two countries, the Andalou report said.
