Two Pakistan Army troops were martyred in a terrorist attack in Khuda Baksh Bazaar near the coastal town of Pasni in Balochistan, the military’s media affairs wing said on Thursday.
In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that terrorists targeted security forces using an improvised explosive device (IED).
Captain Affan Masood and Sepoy Babar Zaman were martyred in the attack, the statement said.
“Search operation is in progress to apprehend the perpetrators. Such cowardly acts by inimical elements, backed by hostile intelligence agencies, cannot sabotage the hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan,” the ISPR said.
“Security forces are determined to neutralize such nefarious designs at all costs,” the statement added.
