7 killed in Pakistani missile strikes in Iran

Tehran, Jan 18 (UNI) Seven non-Iranian nationals, including three women and four children, were killed on Thursday in Pakistan’s missile strikes in a border village in the Iranian southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan, Alireza Marhamati, the deputy governor for security and law enforcement of the province, said.

The Pakistani Foreign Ministry said earlier on Thursday morning that its military has carried out a series of precision strikes against “terrorist hideouts” inside Iran, which killed a number of “terrorists.”

“Sound of several explosions were heard around 4:30 am [local time, 01:00 GMT] today … one of our border villages was hit by a Pakistani missile attack … Three women and four children, who were non-Iranian nationals, were killed in the incident,” Iranian news agency Fars quoted Marhamati as saying.

Marhamati added that another explosion was heard near the city of Saravan in the Sistan and Baluchestan province, but there were no casualties.
