Funeral prayers of martyred security personnel offered in Lasbela
On the other hand, the funeral prayers of security personnel who were martyred at Coastal Highway Ormara, yesterday, were offered at Awaran Malashia in Lasbela on Friday.
Security personnel of Frontier Corps Balochistan and other officials attended the funeral prayers.
After the funeral prayers, the dead bodies were dispatched to their ancestral towns with full honor.
Pakistan Army’s media wing ISPR declared that on October 15, an encounter between security forces and a large number of terrorists took place on Coastal Highway (near Ormara), when OGDCL’s convoy was being escorted from Gawadar to Karachi.
The Security Forces, however, responded to the attack effectively, saved the ODGCL persons, and managed their safe exit from the area.
Security forces managed to kill a few terrorists, but 7 soldiers of FC Balochistan and 7 security guards were martyred during the clash.
