Tick, tick, tick … Seven killed as Pakistan launches airstrikes on Iran. More children killed by grown men with a mental age that does not register

At least seven people have been killed after Pakistan launched airstrikes on Iranian territory early this morning.

Pakistan’s army said the target of the attack was the Baluchistan Liberation Army and the Baluchistan Liberation Front, both separatist groups.

Pakistan’s foreign ministry described the operation as “a series of highly coordinated and specifically targeted precision military strikes”.

It said in a statement: “This morning’s action was taken in light of credible intelligence of impending large scale terrorist activities.”

Earlier reports said at least seven people, including four children and three women, were killed in Thursday’s raids by Pakistan, but the death toll was later revised up.

The incident follows Iran’s attack on Tuesday on Pakistani soil that killed two children in the southwestern Baluchistan province.

Iran and nuclear-armed Pakistan have long regarded each other with suspicion over border attacks, each side blaming the other for turning a blind eye to the militants.

HalVash, an advocacy group for the Baluch people, shared images online that appeared to show the remains of the munitions used in the attack. It said a number of homes had been struck in Saravan, a city in the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchistan.

But while the seeming tit-for-tat exchange has stoked local tensions and spread fears of a wider regional conflict breaking out from Israel’s war in Gaza, both sides have targeted the same group of insurgents, located on either side of their mutual border.
