Four soldiers killed, 5 critically injured as terrorists attack military base in PAK


Four soldiers were killed while five others were critically injured after terrorists launched an attack on a military base in Pakistan’s southwest Balochistan province, a military statement said on Wednesday.

The incident happened during the early hours of Wednesday when a group of terrorists launched the “dastardly attack” on the Zhob Garrison in the province, the military’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in the statement.

“Initial attempt of terrorists to sneak into the facility was checked by soldiers on duty,” the ISPR statement said.

“In the ensuing heavy exchange of fire, the terrorists have been contained into a small area at the boundary,” the ISPR said, adding that three heavily armed terrorists have been killed so far.

The military said that a clearance operation by security forces is underway to apprehend the remaining two terrorists as well.

“Security forces remain determined to thwart all such ghastly attempts at destroying the peace of Balochistan and Pakistan,” it added.
