Bengali Hunt Desk: Six Pakistani soldiers have been killed in a bomb blast on the outskirts of Pakistan's Balochistan province. An army major was also killed in the incident. Note that the patrolling army vehicle was bombed on the road. The accident happened in southwest Pakistan near the Iranian border.
The Pakistani military said in a statement on Friday. A paramilitary Frontier Corps vehicle was targeted by an ID in the Bulda area of Kach district, about 14km from the Iranian border. According to the Pakistani military, the attack killed six soldiers, including a major, and wounded another. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Baloch insurgents occasionally targeted the Pak army that morning.
The Pakistani military said the area where the blast took place was under 24-hour surveillance due to suspicious movements by smugglers and insurgents.
The army has launched a search operation in the area to find the group involved in the attack. It was the largest attack on Pakistani troops in Balochistan during the Corona virus epidemic.
