ISIS Claims Responsibility For Suicide Attacks in Pakistan

The Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for an explosion in the city of Hangu, Orakzai district, north-western Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan, in which 32 people were killed. This was reported on Saturday by Reuters . 

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, Orakzai Suicide Bombing in Pakistan has killed 32 people and injured 31 people. The suicide bombing took place in Kalaya Bazar area of lower Orakzai tribal district.  The explosion, which according to officials was a suicide bombing, took place near an imambargah on Friday morning according to Dawn.

The lower Orakzai district, formerly an agency, is situated near the Hangu district. PM Imran Khan “strongly condemned” the terrorist attack in lower Orakzai as well as the one foiled on Chinese Consulate in Karachi.

The prime minister labelled the twin attacks “a planned campaign to create unrest in the country by those who do not want Pakistan to prosper”. “Let there be no doubt in anyone’s mind that we will crush the terrorists, whatever it takes,” he affirmed.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, during a press conference in Islamabad, condemned the terrorist attacks in Karachi and Orakzai, but added that the “government will not change its strategy”.
