The culprits that attacked Pakistani buses and killed 14 people were members of an Iranian-based rebel group, and the Pakistani government demanded immediate action from Iran.
According to local media and foreign news sources, 15 to 20 armed militants stopped 5-6 buses that were on the way to Gawadar from Karachi on a highway in the southwestern part of Baluchistan. They checked the passengers’ ID cards and killed all fourteen passengers.
The organization behind it is ‘Baloch Raji Aajoi Sangar (BRAS)’. The group said it was a targeting attack on Pakistani navy and coast guard officials.
“The training camp and logistical camps of this coalition are within the borders of Iran,” Pakistani foreign minister Shah `Mehmood Qureshi said.
He told Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, “We conveyed Pakistan’s national anger.” He also added that he called on Iran to take action against the BRAS rebels.
Iran’s state-run IRNA press also said that the two foreign ministers had a conversation on this issue.
Iran and Pakistan have maintained a limited relationship since the suicide bombs that was targeting Iran’s elite revolutionary guards in the southeastern Iran region near the Pakistani border in mid-February, which killed at least 27 people.
At that time, it was reported that Baloch rebels that were based in Pakistan.
Because the Baloch rebels have been doing terrors across Iran and Pakistan, this group has been a problem to both of the nations. Minister Qureshi said that they will have a barbed-wire fence on the borderline to avoid this kind of problem. He said, “We are going to gradually block the entire borderline which is about 950km,”

Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand, and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. I will turn to you and make you fruitful and multiply you and will confirm my covenant with you. (Leviticus 26: 8,9)
Lord, fourteen people were killed by an Iranian – based rebel group’s gunfire on a Pakistani bus. Last year, 27 rebels belong to a Pakistani – based rebel group killed themselves in a suicide bombing.
Because they worship idols, trust the falsehood, and make it an ideology, they don’t know what sin is. They are going to the path of the destruction. Let them meet Jesus.
First of all, Let the churches of Iran and Pakistan that are seeing revivals reveal Jesus Christ who is the light of this world in this land that is full of darkness.
Therefore, we believe that they will confess “I was a rebel who used to kill people. After I met Jesus, my life has changed dramatically.”
Praise our faithful God who fulfills his promise in Iran and Pakistan. We believe that it will prosper by God and become greater. We praise God who will spread his love among all nations.
