Iranian forces fired about half a dozen mortar shells into Pakistani territory near the Panjgur border in Balochistan on Saturday, according to official sources.
According to Dawn News, the shells were fired by Iranian border guards and exploded in an open space in the Parako area, a small village in Panjgur district.
The report stated security officials said mortar shells were fired in the early hours of the morning, adding that no casualties were reported.
However, panic gripped the people of the area when they woke up to loud explosions.
Dawn News reported that Iranian forces have violated Pakistani territory on a number of occasions in recent months and Islamabad has repeatedly lodged protests with Tehran over border violations.
Pakistan shares a 900km porous border with Iran and the two countries decided in 2014 to boost intelligence coordination to wipe out terrorists from the region.
