Pakistan has listed the Zainebiyoun Brigade, a semi-military force associated with the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, in the list of “terrorist” groups.

The Ministry of Interior of Pakistan has stated that the Zainebiyoun Brigade is involved in activities that undermine the peace and security of Pakistan.

The Zainebiyoun Brigade is a semi-military group composed of Shia Pakistanis created by the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran to fight in Syria.

The Zainebiyoun Brigade was labeled a terrorist group by the Ministry of Interior of Pakistan on March 29 and established by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran in 2013.

Both the Zainebiyoun and Fatemiyoun are semi-military forces linked to the Quds Force, purportedly organizing Afghan and Pakistani volunteers to fight Bashar al-Assad’s opponents and ISIS in Syria, as reported by Afghanistan International.

Human rights groups previously alleged Iran was sending Afghan and Pakistani migrants to Syria to support Bashar al-Assad.

Pakistan’s Counter-Terrorism Department linked “Mohammad Mehdi” to an attack on Tariq Usmani, Pakistan’s Grand Mufti, a former Supreme Court judge, and an Islamic Cooperation Organization member, targeted in 2022 attack, aiming to disrupt peace and stir sectarian tensions. As of now, Iranian authorities have not commented on the matter.
