A member of Balochistan’s Anti-Terrorist Force (ATF) was tragically killed in a violent incident in the Mastung district of Balochistan on Friday, as reported by The Express Tribune. Furthermore, his brother sustained severe injuries during the assault. The perpetrators behind this attack remain unidentified, launching a sudden and lethal assault on the ATF members in the Killi Baqi area of Kanak Tehsil.

According to The Express Tribune, Muhammad Ibrahim, the ATF member, lost his life in the attack, while his brother, Muhammad Saqib, suffered critical wounds. Following the incident, Saqib was urgently transported to Shaheed Nawab Ghous Bakhsh Raisani Hospital, although his condition remains serious. In response, the authorities dispatched police and levies personnel to the site of the attack to commence a thorough investigation.

Preliminary findings indicate that this was a targeted attack, shedding light on the concerning security challenges faced in the volatile district of Mastung. The region has previously experienced various militant assaults targeting security forces, pro-government figures, and the Hazara minority community, particularly during their pilgrimage to Iran.

In a previous incident last month, a military base in Baluchistan province was targeted by terrorists, resulting in clashes that claimed the lives of 12 soldiers and a civilian, as reported by Voice of America (VOA). The army’s media wing revealed that five terrorists attempted to infiltrate the facility in the province’s northern Zhob district, but were intercepted by troops. During the hour-long confrontations that ensued, nine soldiers and all of the attackers were killed. However, according to reliable security sources in Zhob, at least 12 soldiers were injured, and the number of fatalities was expected to rise.
