AND WE'LL PROVIDE THE AIR COVER:

Iran Calls For Trilateral Military Operations Inside Afghanistan, Pakistan (Tariq Majidi, 4/14/15, Tolo News)

Iranian Interior Minister Abdul Reza Rahimi Fazli on Tuesday proposed launching a trilateral counter-insurgency operation inside Afghanistan and Pakistan territories in order to halt the expansion of Daesh, which has increasingly collaborated with other insurgent groups in the region to wage a campaign of indiscriminate violence that threatens stability in all three nations.

The Iranian official's proposal comes just a few days after a terrorist group known as Jaishuladl killed eight Iranian border police in the region between Iran and Pakistan.

"Tehran doesn't face a critical security threat right now, and the recent events inside Iranian territory happened because of the lack of preemptive measures in neighboring countries," 

Minister Fazli said on Tuesday. "But Iran wants a joint military operation against the insurgents to be conducted inside the Afghan and Pakistani territories."
