Four Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers were martyred in a terrorist attack in Quetta’s Margat area. Terrorists targeted the FC personnel through an improvised explosive device (IED), the military’s media wing said.
“Terrorists targeted Frontier Corps troops employed for [the] security of Margat Mines” using an IED, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said. The martyred personnel included a junior commissioned officer of FC Balochistan.
They were identified as Subedar Sardar All Khan and sepoys Musaddaf Hussain, Muhammad Anwar and Awais Khan.
Soon after the attack, a large-scale search operation was initiated by the security forces to hunt the terrorists. “Such cowardly acts by inimical elements cannot sabotage the hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan,” the ISPR said.
It added that security forces were determined to “neutralize their nefarious designs even at the cost of [their] blood and lives”. Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, while expressing grief on the martyrdom of the four FC personnel, said the operation by security forces would continue till the last terrorist was present in the country.
