The area of the attack has been cordoned off while a search operation has been launched to arrest the terrorists. In January this year, four security officials were martyred while staving off a terrorist attack on a training centre of a paramilitary force in central Balochistan.

Four terrorists – including a suicide bomber – were also killed in the botched attack on the Frontier Corps training centre in Loralai district. The heavily armed terrorists attempted to storm the residential/administration compound at the training centre, according to the military’s media wing.

However, the terrorists were challenged at the entry point and denied entry into the residential/administration compound, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

After failing to achieve their primary target, the terrorists resorted to indiscriminate fire and entered a compound adjacent to the check post which was immediately cordoned off by the security forces.

“The valiant and timely action of the security forces denied the terrorists entry into the residential area which would have resulted in more casualties,” the ISPR said. The terrorists were pinned down in the check-post by the security forces in the subsequent operation. “Four terrorists were shot down including one suicide bomber who blew himself during the final stage of the clearance operation,” the military’s media wing said.

It added that four security forces personnel were martyred and four others were injured in the initial exchange of fire at the check post. The martyrs were identified as Subedar Major Munawar, Havaldar Iqbal Khan, Havaldar Bilal and Sepoy Naqshab.

The four injured security personnel included; Havaldar Muhammad Amjad, DMT Wajid, DMT Abdul Rasheed and FC soldier Shahbaz. Two of the injured are said to be in serious condition. Official sources said armed terrorists entered the area at around 5 am and also hurled hand grenades at the security forces. They said apart from the army and FC troops, Special Services Group personnel joined the operation with the help of military helicopters.
