These claims spread after Pakistan carried out a series of military strikes on what they claimed to be separatist militant hideouts inside Iran. These strikes have significantly heightened tensions between the two neighboring countries.

Both Pakistan and Iran have now resorted to attacking militants on each other's soil, marking an extraordinary escalation in the ongoing conflict in the Middle East and the wider region.
