7 Pakistan Army Soldiers Killed In Balochistan IED Attacks: ISPR

Seven Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers of the Pakistan Army have been killed in two separate incidents in Balochistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) stated on Tuesday.

According to the ISPR, six Pakistan Army soldiers, including a junior commissioned officer (JCO), were killed when the patrolling team’s vehicle was hit by an IED when it was returning to a base camp in Pir Ghaib, Mach in Balochistan. A civilian driver was also killed in the IED attacks.

The soldiers killed in the IED blast were identified as Naib Subedar Ihsan  Ullah Khan, Naik Zubair Khan, Naik Ijaz Ahmed, Naik Maula Bux, Naik Noor Muhammad. The driver was identified as Abdul Jabbar according to Pakistan media reports.

In another incident, Sepoy Imdad Ali was killed during a gunfight with rebels near Mand, in Balochistan’s Kech district, the ISPR stated.

This is one of the biggest terror attacks in Balochistan in this month. Earlier, on May 8, Pakistan Army soldiers were killed when an IED hit their reconnaissance vehicle near the Pakistan-Iran border. This incident transpired only 14 kilometres away from the Iran border.

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) claimed the attack of Pakistan Army convoy while returning from Pakistan-Iran border. A statement by the Baloch Liberation Army read – The vehicle in the convoy was completely destroyed when it was hit by an IED installed by the BLA, resulting in eliminating six Pakistani Army personnel including an army major and injuring several others.

Balochistan has become a large source of terrorism in Pakistan. Over the past few years, infinite people including Pakistan army soldiers have lost their lives to terror attacks in the restive province and the Baloch Liberation Army (BPA) has emerged as a dangerous player demanding freedom from Pakistan.
