Iran fires rockets into Balochistan

Iranian border guards fired dozens of rockets into Kech district of Pakistan's Balochistan province, officials said on Monday.

Iranian border guards Monday night fired 42 rockets into Kech's Zamuran area, located close to the border, Dawn online reported citing sources in Balochistan Levies paramilitary force. The rockets landed at a village in Zamuran and injured seven Pakistani civilians, Levies sources said.
The sources added that some armed men had attacked a checkpost in Koh-e-Sor inside Iranian territory and killed three Iranian officials Sunday evening.

Panic prevailed among people as Iranian border guards continued to fire rockets inside Pakistani territory the entire night.

Levies and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel rushed to the area to defend the border.
When FC and Levies personnel reached the border, the Iranian guards stopped firing. Iran has alleged that the assailants who attacked the Iranian checkpost sneaked back into Pakistan. The allegation has been denied by Pakistani officials.
