Iran has carried out attacks in Pakistan, targeting alleged bases of the militant group Jaish al-Adl. The Iranian state media reported that missiles and drones were utilized in the attack on Tuesday. However, Pakistan did not immediately acknowledge the incident. Jaish al-Adl, a Sunni militant group primarily operating in nuclear-armed Pakistan, has previously launched attacks on Iranian security forces along the border. 

The bases, reportedly hit and destroyed, were located in Pakistan's Balochistan province, according to Iran's Nournews, affiliated with the country's top security body. This marks an unprecedented missile and drone attack on Pakistan by Iran, heightening tensions in the region.

Simultaneously, late on Monday, Iran's military launched missiles in Northern Iraq, targeting "espionage centers" linked to Israel and other "anti-Iranian" groups in the Kurdish region. Officials in Iraq reported civilian casualties, with at least four civilians killed. In response, Iraq recalled its ambassador from Tehran for consultations and summoned Iran's chargé d’affaires in Baghdad to protest the strikes, condemning them as a "blatant violation" of Iraq's sovereignty and a threat to regional security.

These events unfold against the backdrop of heightened tensions in the Middle East, with concerns of a wider spillover from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. It remains a complex and volatile situation, with diplomatic repercussions and regional security implications.

In March 2022, India accidentally misfired a Brahmos missile into Pakistan. Initially, there was no response from Pakistan until the Indian defense ministry admitted the accidental firing due to a technical malfunction during routine missile maintenance. Subsequently, in August 2022, the Indian Air Force dismissed three officers, following a Court of Inquiry that found deviations from Standard Operating Procedures.
