BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – Five of the fourteen Iranian border guards that were kidnapped along the Iran-Pakistan border have been released today, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad ‘Ali Jafari said on Thursday.

“Five of the abducted Mirjaveh Border guards were freed and efforts are underway to secure release of other hostages,” the IRGC commander said during his press conference.

Jafari said that negotiations are still ongoing between Iran and the members of Jaysh Al-Adl that kidnapped the border guards.

“The release of all the Iranian border guards will take time but there is no room to worry about,” he added.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
