irankidnap soildersIran says it does not confirm reports about the execution of one of its five border guards kidnapped last month in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.

Iranian Interior Ministry Spokesman Hossein Ali Amiri said late on Sunday that the

ministry has learned the hostages are unharmed and in good health, ISNA reported.

Amiri was referring to a claim made by the so-called Jaish-ul-Adl terrorist group earlier in the day on its Tweeter page.

On February 6, the Iranian border guards were abducted in the provincial Jakigour region, on the border with Pakistan. The men were later transferred to the Pakistani territory.

The news of the kidnapping was first broken by Saudi Arabia’s al-Arabiya news network.

On February 9, Iran’s Foreign Ministry invited Pakistani Ambassador to Tehran Noor Mohammad Jadmani in protest at the abduction.

Following the kidnapping of the Iranian border guards, Iranian and international activists launched a campaign, known as ‘Free Iranian Soldiers’, on social media websites, calling for the release of the abductees.

It is not the first time Jaish-ul-Adl has carried out attacks against Iranian security forces.

On October 25, 2013, the group killed 14 Iranian border guards and wounded six others in the border region near the city of Saravan in Sistan and Baluchestan.

Tehran has taken all diplomatic measures to free the hostages and held direct and even unofficial talks for their release.

Iran says it holds the Pakistani government responsible for the lives of the hostages.
