It is immediately not clear what caused the blast which took place at a seminary in Quetta’s Satellite Town. The ISPR in a Tweet said that the troops of Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan have reached the site of incident and carrying out joint search operation with the police. It also said that the area has been cordoned off and injured had been shifted to the hospital.

“Every possible assistance be given to police & civil administration. Those who targeted innocents in a mosque can never be true Muslim,” ISPR quoted army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa as saying.

Police chief of Balochistan Mohsin Hassan Butt told AFP the blast took place in a satellite town near Quetta, the province’s main city. The emergency has been declared at all hospitals of Quetta while the authorities have directed the doctors and paramedical staff to be present at their respective duty places.

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan and Home Minister Ziaullah Langove have condemned the blast and expressed sorrow over the loss of precious lives.

CM Khan said – those who targeted worshippers have no religion or tribal affiliation. “They are only terrorists and deserve the harshest punishment,” he said, adding that state enemies are once again trying to create a law and order situation in Balochistan. The CM said, however, that they would not let anyone destroy the hard-earned peace that had been achieved through the sacrifices of the armed forces and citizens.

The mosque blast occurred three days after two men were killed and over a dozen injured – including two soldiers of the Frontier Corps in an IED blast near a vehicle of the security forces on McCaughey Road in the provincial capital of Balochistan.
