TURBAT: A Pakistan Army soldier was martyred in a terrorist attack near Turbat airport on Thursday, according to a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The military’s media wing said that terrorists using “small arms” attacked the troops near Turbat airport, as a result of which a “brave soldier, Naik Aqeel Abbas, embraced shahadat (martyrdom)".

Following the attack, Frontier Corps personnel launched a large-scale operation in the area to hunt the attackers.

In its statement, the ISPR said that "such cowardly acts by inimical elements, backed by anti-state forces could not sabotage the hard-earned peace and prosperity in the province.

“Security forces are determined to neutralise nefarious designs [of the enemy] even at the cost of blood and lives."

Earlier this week, four Frontier Corps soldiers were martyred in an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion on the Margat-Quetta road in Balochistan.

"Terrorists targeted Frontier Corps troops employed for [the] security of Margat Mines" using an IED, the ISPR had said.
