Three militants killed in Balochistan’s Kech district

QUETTA: Security forces claim to have killed at least three suspected militants, including a militant commander in Balochistan’s Kech district on Tuesday morning.

“Security forces launched a search operation against terrorists in Tump area of Kech district,” said Khan Wasey, a spokesman for the Frontier Corps (FC).

“Three terrorists were killed during an exchange of fire with security forces,” Wasey stated.

The FC spokesperson added that the terrorists had recently targeted a school in the area with a hand grenade.

Weapons and ammunition were also seized by the security forces.

In another incident, one FC official was killed while two personnel were wounded from an improvised explosive device (IED) near a vehicle in Balochistan’s Mastung district on Tuesday morning.

Security personnel who declined to be named told media that terrorists targeted a FC vehicle which had been providing water to check posts through an IED.

The injured soldiers were rushed to Quetta for medical treatment. No individual or group has taken responsibility for the attack.

Balochistan, Pakistan’s largest but least developed province, has remained under the grip of violence for over a decade which has claimed thousands of lives.
