SULAYMANIYAH — Border guard forces in Sulaymaniyah detained 22 Pakistani nationals on Saturday for attempting to enter the country without official authorization from Iran.

According to a statement released by the First Border Guard Command, “The First Region Border Command successfully apprehended 22 Pakistani individuals attempting to unofficially cross the borders. The operation was conducted by a detachment from the Second Border Battalion of the Third Brigade in the Sulaymaniyah Governorate.”
