Terror attack in Balochistan: Seven FC personnel martyred

News Desk:

Seven Frontier Corps (FC) personnel martyred in a terrorist attack in Balochistan’s Harnai district on Sunday. The military’s media wing said seven soldiers embraced Shahadat during an exchange of fire with terrorists.

The area has been cordoned off to apprehend the terrorists involved in the terror attack, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement released to the press on Sunday evening.

After the terror act, security forces launched a search operation and blocked all routes to arrest the culprits behind the terrorist act.

“Such cowardly acts by inimical elements backed by anti-state forces will not be allowed to sabotage hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan,” the ISPR said, adding that security forces were determined to “thwart their nefarious designs at all costs”.

In a tweet, Prime Minister Imran Khan said he was “saddened to hear of” the soldiers’ martyrdom in the attack.

“My heartfelt condolences & prayers go to their families. Our nation stands with our courageous soldiers who face attacks from Indian backed terrorists,” he wrote.

The martyred personnel were identified as Naib Subedar Gulzar, resident of Mianwali; Sepoy Faisal, resident of Hafizabad; Sepoy Abdul Wakeel, resident of Pishin; Sepoy Sher Zaman, resident of Kohat; Sepoy Jamal, resident of Dera Bugti; Abdul Rauf, resident of Dera Ghazi Khan; and Faqeer Muhammad, resident of Muzaffargarh.

The incident comes five days after 10 were killed n a gun battle with security forces during an intelligence-based operation in Balochistan’s Awaran area.

“These terrorists were involved in firing on security forces, which resulted in the martyrdom of Lance Naik Mohammad Iqbal on Dec 20 in the Awaran area,” the ISPR had said at the time.
