The Revolutionary Guards killed 4 Sunni terroristsat a border crossing with Pakistan in September.

The Guard did not say how many were kidnapped, but state news agency IRNA quoted an unnamed official as saying 14 troops were "abducted between 4am and 5am in the Lulakdan area of the border by a terrorist group".

The reports did not name a specific group as a suspect in the abduction.

In a statement, the Force's Quds Base said a number of local Basij forces and the border regiment forces stationed at a border post in Mirjaveh region in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan were abducted on Monday evening after acts of treason and collusion involving an element or elements of the anti-Revolution groups who had infiltrated the country.

Iranian media later said an al-Qaida-affiliated group known as Jaish al-Adl claimed responsibility for the attack.

He said the terrorists took the Iranian forces to the Pakistani territory.

Mohammad Pakpour, the commander of the IRGC Ground Forces, proposed a joint military operation with Pakistan against "hooligans" to release the kidnapped forces.

"DGMOs from two sides are coordinating actions in this regard", said the statement, adding, "No efforts will be spared to assist our Iranian brothers in finding the Iranian guards".

He said the attack was a retaliation for what he called Iranian state's oppression against Sunni people in Sistan-Baluchestan, a mainly Sunni province that has a long history of unrest from separatist terrorists.

He added that Iranian foreign minister's assistant in West Asia affairs asked the Pakistani ambassador to Tehran on Tuesday evening to help release the abductees "within the framework of mutual relations, the principle of good neighborliness and commitments under mutual agreements and regulations of the worldwide law".
