A security check post of the Pakistani forces was attacked in Balochistan’s district Kech by unknown assailants, leading to the death of soldiers. Security officials have confirmed the attack.

According to the reports, unknown armed men opened fire on the forces’ security check post in the Singwan area of district Kech along the Iranian border.

The ISPR confirmed the attack in a media statement, saying that a group of “terrorists” opened fire at the check post. The forces stationed there retaliated and a gun battle ensued.

The ISPR said the forces had pushed the attack back. However, 34-year-old Sepoy Hasnain Ishtiaq, a resident of Dera Ghazi Khan, and 27-year-old Sepoy Inayatullah, hailing from Jhal Magsi, had been killed.

“Security forces have launched an immediate sanitisation operation in the area and are in communication with Iranian authorities across as well,” the statement concluded.

Chief Minister Balochistan Abdul Quddus Bizenjo condemned the attack on the security forces and reiterated the “government’s resolve against the menace of terrorism.” He said the “evil intentions of the enemies of peace will be thwarted with full forces.”

Several “pro-independence” groups are active in the Kech region, but at the time of writing, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
