10 Pakistan Army soldiers martyred in terrorist attack on a check post in Baluchistan

One terrorist killed, three arrested and several others injured during exchange of fire in Kech district of Balochistan

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement issued to the media, 10 Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred after terrorists attacked a security forces' check post in Kech district of Balochistan. The "fire raid" by terrorists occurred on the night of Jan 25-26.

"During intense exchange of fire, one terrorist was killed and several injured. While repulsing terrorists' fire raid, 10 soldiers’ embraced martyrdom," the statement said. It added that three terrorists had been apprehended in the follow-up clearance operation, which it said was still in progress to hunt down the perpetrators of the incident.

"The armed forces are determined to eliminate terrorists from our soil no matter what the cost," the ISPR statement said.  

It seems that terrorists have launched a new terrorist campaign to target the Pakistan Army in KP and Balochistan provinces.  Earlier this month, a Pakistan Army soldier was martyred after terrorists attacked a military post in Bannu's Janikhel.

On January 5, two soldiers were martyred and as many terrorists killed in two separate intelligence-based operations (IBOs) conducted by security forces in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Last month, four soldiers of the Pakistan Army embraced martyred in an exchange of fire with terrorists during an IBO in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan tribal district.
