New footage shows abducted Iranian border guards

A new footage has been released that shows 12 abducted border guards imprisoned by terrorists.

The video, obtained and released by the Iranian border police force, shows the 12 abductees saying their names. It is not clear where or when the video has been recorded, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Pakistani-based terrorists kidnapped 12 Iranian forces at a border post in Mirjaveh region in Sistan-Baluchestan Province on October 15.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday pointed to his recent visit to Pakistan in order to help release the Iranian border guards and said the Pakistani officials have promised to step up their efforts to secure the release of the abducted border guards.

Iranian military forces along the southeastern border areas have been several times attacked by terrorist groups coming from Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Tehran has frequently asked the two neighbors to step up security at the common border to prevent terrorist attacks on Iranian forces.
