Balochistan: Soldier martyred, 2 including Major injured In Terrorist Attack

A soldier was martyred and two others, including a major, were injured in a terrorist attack on a Frontier Corps (FC) vehicle near the Loralai district of Balochistan.

According to the Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR), terrorists attacked the FC vehicle near the Shahrig area of Loralai.

FC personnel retaliated in which 3 terrorists were killed.

However, in an exchange of fire with the terrorists, Naik Sharif was martyred, while Major Qasim and a soldier were injured.

The FC personnel injured in the terrorist attack have been shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Quetta for treatment, the statement said.

Condemnation of the Home Minister

Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed in a tweet on a social networking site strongly condemned the incident of firing on a FC vehicle in Balochistan and offered condolences to the family of Shaheed Naik Sharif.

He said that firing on FC vehicle was a very cowardly act but these acts of terrorism could not demoralize our forces.

It should be noted that a Pakistan Army soldier was martyred in an exchange of fire with suspected terrorists in South Waziristan yesterday.

Earlier on July 31, two soldiers were martyred and nine others were injured in terrorist attacks on security forces in different parts of the South and North Waziristan tribal districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
