Iran MP calls for ‘decisive action’ to deadly attack by Taliban forces

An Iranian lawmaker has called for a “decisive action” following an unprovoked attack by armed Taliban forces on a border outpost in southeastern Iran.

“Yesterday, the tension caused on the border with Afghanistan resulted in the martyrdom of two [Iranian] border guards,” Mohammad Vahidi explained at an open session of the parliament on Sunday.

“Of course, this issue should be investigated by the order of the Majlis (parliament) speaker in the National Security Committee, and according to the approach that exists at the state level, there is a need to take special measures and a decisive response,” he added.

Vahidi said bad actors see the Iranian people’s kindness and compassion and wrongly assume that they can trespass on the borders and kill Iranian border guards.

He also lamented that “unguarded remarks” are occasionally uttered by the current rulers of Afghanistan which are “not acceptable at all.”

Two Iranian border guards embraced martyrdom and two civilians were injured on Saturday in an attack by Taliban forces at the Sasuli border post, located in Iran’s Zabol county, in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan.
