The situation is escalating, with both nations claiming to have targeted terrorist hideouts, leading to concerns of a potential conflict between Pakistan and Iran. Stay updated on the latest developments with Wattan Daily’s coverage of the Pakistan-Iran conflict.

Iran initiated military strikes, targeting the Jaish al-Adl militant group in Balochistan, heightening tensions. In retaliation, Pakistan executed “precision military strikes” against alleged terrorist hideouts in Iran’s Sistan-Balochistan province.
