After India's persistence on terror crackdown, Iran has threatened to act against Pakistan for its terror proxies, since the state fails to act against them.  

Amid the elevating tensions between India and Pakistan, the Iranian government and armed forces have called to act against the terror groups harboured within the borders of Pakistan, that the country cannot handle itself. 

According to media reports, General Qassem Soleimani, commander of IRGC Quds Force has issued a stringent warning against the Pakistan government and its installed Prime Minister, Imran Khan blaming the country of arousing unrest.

Since the Pulwama attack, India has garnered solid global support against terrorism, and the three neighbours of Pakistan- India, Afghanistan, and Iran have blamed the state of fostering cross-border terrorism. 

Iran even named Pakistan as the culprit for the terror attack on its soil that killed 27 revolutionary guards. 

The suicide bomber who carried out last week's attack that killed 27 members of Iran's Revolutionary Guards was a Pakistani national, the elite force said on Tuesday.

"The suicide bomber was named Hafez Mohammad-Ali and was from Pakistan," said Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, commander of the Guards' ground forces, quoted by the force's Sepah news agency.

The February 13 suicide bombing killed 27 Revolutionary Guards on a bus in the volatile southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan which borders Pakistan.

The general said the probe into the attack had made headway after the model of the explosives-packed car that exploded next to the bus had been identified. "Two days ago the first clue, a woman, was identified and arrested, and through this woman, we reached others," Pakpour said.

Apart from the suicide bomber, one of the suspected accomplices was also Pakistani, he said.

Pakpour said the attack had originally been planned for February 11 to coincide with celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Iran's Islamic revolution. But had security forces had been "fully prepared" on that day, he said.
