Iran border guards fired three mortar shells into Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province on Wednesday, triggering panic among the local population.

“Mortar shells fired by Iranian border guards landed in the district of Panjgoor,” a provincial government official said.

Two of the shells landed near Frontier Corps check-post, while the third landed at Killi Karim Dad, the Dawn quoted the official as saying.

No property or human loss was reported in the shelling.

Locals panicked as a result of the attack, and Frontier Corps personnel reached the site to initiate investigations.

Security forces tightened security at the border after the incident.

Pakistan shares a 900-kilometre porous border with Iran and the two countries in 2014 decided to boost intelligence coordination to wipe out terrorists from the border region.
