“Today, Iranian police forces are more resolved than ever, and you will hear the news of the revenge in the near future,” Rezae added.

“Pakistan has said that it will deal decisively with the perpetrators of the terrorist attack and that it is their final warning,” he said.

The Iranian border police commander also warned neighboring countries to observe the principle of good neighborliness and not allow destabilizing activities on their soil.
“Our patience has limits,” Brigadier General Ahmad-Ali Goudarzi said.
Over the past years, Sistan and Baluchestan has witnessed several terror attacks targeting both civilians and security forces. Saravan has been the focal point in clashes between Iranian forces and terrorist groups as well as drug traffickers.
On Sunday, Farah Azeem Shah, the spokesman of the Baluchistan Government in Pakistan, condemned the terrorist attack in Saravan.
Azeem Shah said, “The time has come for the governments and nations of Iran and Pakistan to send a strong message to these elements,” stressing that the purpose of such acts of terror was to harm the brotherly relations between Pakistan and Iran.
