Pakistan conducted a series of military strikes Thursday morning against insurgents operating in Iran in response to a deadly bombing in the southwestern Pakistani province of Baluchistan on Tuesday.

The Pakistan Armed Forces completed a "series of highly coordinated and specifically targeted precision military strikes" against Pakistani terrorists in Iran's Siestan-o-Baluchistan province as part of an intelligence-based operation named "Marg Bar Sarmachar," Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced.

The strikes were described as successful by the MoFA and left a "number of terrorists" dead.

"Over the last several years, in our engagements with Iran, Pakistan has consistently shared its serious concerns about the safe havens and sanctuaries enjoyed by Pakistani-origin terrorists calling themselves *Sarmachars* on the ungoverned spaces inside Iran," the MoFA said, adding that it has shared "multiple dossiers with concrete evidence of the presence and activities of these terrorists."

Pakistan said the "lack of action" on its "serious concerns" caused the "Sarmachars" to kill innocent Pakistanis without consequence, which ultimately prompted the strikes on Thursday after credible intelligence reports revealed impending large scale terrorist activities.

While the country said it "fully respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity" of Iran, it cannot compromise the security or national interest of Pakistan.

"This action is a manifestation of Pakistan's unflinching resolve to protect and defend its national security against all threats," the announcement read. "The successful execution of this highly complex operation is also a testimony to the professionalism of the Pakistan Armed Forces. Pakistan will continue to take all necessary steps to preserve the safety and security of its people which is sacrosanct, inviolable and sacred."

Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs described Iran as a "brotherly country" and said the Pakistani people hold "great respect and affection for the Iranian people."

"We have always emphasized dialogue and cooperation in confronting common challenges including the menace of terrorism and will continue to endeavor to find joint solutions," the MoFA said.

As if we needed any more examples of somebody being out of touch with what's going on in the world.

Remember her reset button that she gave to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov?

Hillary Clinton then told Lavrov, “I would like to present you with a little gift that represents what President Obama and Vice President Biden and I have been saying and that is, we want to reset our relationship, and so we will do it together.”

When Clinton noticed that Lavrov was looking at the words with a confused expression on his face, she mentioned that they had worked hard to get the proper word in Russian.

“Do you think we got it?” she asked him.

Lavrov laughed as he said, “You got it wrong.”

He went on to inform Clinton that it should have read “perezagruzka,” which is the actual word for reset. Instead, Hillary Clinton had mistakenly inscribed a word that means “overcharged.”

I don't like Pakistan much, but I detest Iran even more. Hope the Pakis kick ass in Iran and teach them a hard lesson or two.

Well, Pakistan has something that Iran does not yet have.

China's as a immediate neighbor and their backing perhaps?

They are concerned, I'm sure. That is a tough neighborhood.

Yeah, and Iran is backed by Russia who supplies most of their arms.

They are working together. Iran produces drones that Russia is using against Ukraine in the current stalemate.

I continuously amazed that politicians jaws don't drop off; or they aren't struck down by lightning (which is one of the reasons I don't believe in God); when they say shit like this.

The Minister was probably holding a knife behind his back while saying it.

Pakistan and Iran deserve each other.

There is a lot of fighting among the Arab nations.  It may be only a matter of time before one turns the other into a parking lot or glass.
