Iran conducted a missile and drone attack against what it claimed were two strongholds of the Jaish al-Adl militant group in the Balochistan province of Pakistan. The strike killed two children and injured several others, according to Pakistani authorities. Pakistan responded by recalling its ambassador from Iran, expelling the Iranian ambassador to Pakistan, and warning Iran of "serious consequences."
