Tensions rise as at least three women and four children lose their lives in a devastating missile attack carried out by Pakistan on a border village in Iran's southeast region, as reported by Iranian state media.

Alireza Marhamati, the deputy provincial governor of Sistan-Baluchistan province, confirmed the tragic incident, emphasizing that the victims were non-Iranian nationals.

“Pakistan attacked an Iranian border village with missiles. Three women and four children children were killed in this incident. All non-Iranian nationals," he added, reports AFP.

The missile strike occurred merely two days after Iran executed strikes against what it referred to as "terrorist" targets within Pakistan, resulting in at least two children losing their lives.

Iran's foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, asserted that the strikes were in response to deadly attacks in Iran's southeast by the jihadist group Jaish al-Adl.

The group, formed in 2012 and deemed a "terrorist" organization by Tehran, has been implicated in attacks that have claimed innocent lives, escalating tensions between the two neighboring nations.
