Very much doubt they would need to send an *elite* force to stage a bombing...you could get any old stooge to do that,just point him in the right direction,get on the phone to your contacts and you're done.Hell we do it all the time.
Obviously there for a reason though...Iran will no doubt say nothing or deflect it but most countries would if they got caught with their pants down in such a situation. The ISI would be nothing without the CIA though so maybe they tipped them off.

Pakistan says detains 11 Iranian Guards on the border

The Revolutionary Guards were arrested in the Mashkhel area on the border with Iran eight days after a suicide bomber killed 42 people, including six Revolutionary Guard commanders, in Iran's southeastern Sistan-Baluchestan province.

A Sunni Muslim group Jundollah (God's soldiers), claimed responsibility for the blast.

Still seems to be conflicting reports on who all they captured.

I think Pakistan is trying to deter future crossings by Iran. In a few days, the Iranians will be released and all will be forgiven by both sides.

I’m guessing they were sent in to capture not kill or destroy.

Iran wouldn’t need to send in IRGC, they'd just contact their Taliban counter-parts.

Don’t kid yourself, IRAN IRGC are elite. They are trained and highly skilled. No doubt the US tipped of Pakistan, drones or spies would have gathered more than enough intel.

Imagine the torture ? Pakistan will be getting all the information necessary.

Secondly, you mock Iran for its coverstory.
Do you really think they are going to come out and say

'' Yes, our secret guard were captured ''
or
'' Yes, you have discovered a black ops team? ''

What does the US Say?

'' They are hikers from Iraq ''

Militarily Iran wants nothing of Pakistan. If nothing else, Pak is nuclear so Iran wont be pushing too much.

the first thing that came to my mind is that they were most likely caught on purpose.

this will divert the attention away from what the real secret troops are doing inside enemy territory.

Has anybody who has replied even read the OP article ???

The whole incident started after the Iranian border security police gave chase to a bunch of smugglers and ended up in Pakistan, where the Pakistani borders guards apprehended the whole lot -Smugglers and their pursuers .

The border between Iran and Pakistan is extremely open and smuggling is rife. It is very plausible that this is merely what they claim to be -- over enthusiastic Iranian border guards! The smugglers move fuel from Iran to Pakistan and liquor from Pakistan to Iran.

Hundreds of smugglers move between Iran and Pakistan every month. What kind of "elite force" would get caught doing something so stupid as racing into Pakistan in SUV's ?

I dont think there were any Revolutionary Guards in this case to begin with. Just smugglers. Also the US couldn't have tipped off the Pakistanis because the US doesnt monitor the entire Pakistani border, just the part that adjoins Afghanistan.

Iran is shia muslim, the Al qaeda and taliban are sunni. The sunni and shia have nothing to do with each other. For all those people thinking that Iran supports the Taliban and Al qaeda, you are wrong. Al qaeda and taliban are supported by Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. The Pakistani government and ISI are divided in their loyalty between the people as well as the terrorists. The different terrorist groups were a creation of the ISI, they used them when they needed them and are now getting rid of them due to US pressure and because they have no use for them. And sure enough in the future when they need any proxies they will create new ones.
Iran has blamed US/UK in carrying out current bombing through Pakistan. Remember the US around 6 months back claimed that there is a possibility for the insurgents in Pakistan to take over the nukes??? What is to say that the IRGC can't take over Pakistan's nukes if a bunch of insurgents could have done that and even if Pakistan has nukes what good is that, any country that uses nukes nowdays will be condemned and isolated from the rest of the world. Pakistan is not sooo stupid to use it.
The current scenario could be due to smuggling or it could be used as a means to divert attention towards Pakistan. I dont think Iran will attack Pakistan and even if it does Iran can easily trample it...
