Earlier today, at least seven people, including five security personnel, were martyred as an explosion ripped through a police truck in Quetta.

The bomb went off as a truck carrying 35 police personnel was passing the area. Security forces reached the location and cordoned off the area and a security sweep was underway.

Chief Minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Khan Zehri condemned the attack and called for the best possible medical treatment to the injured.

Mr. Sarfraz Bugti said that Pakistan will take the war against terrorists and their facilitators to their ultimate conclusion. "We will continue the war against these terrorists and we will defeat them".

The minister further stated that fronesic team from Lahore will come tomorrow to further investigate this incident. Find us on Facebook too!

He added, "Terrorists plan their activities from Afghanistan while India's Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) along with Afghanistan's National Directorate of Security (NDS) facilitate the terrorists carrying out their attacks in Pakistan". Afterward, he said such attacks would not bring down the morale of the security forces. In a separate attack in Quetta, a police officer was gunned down by assailants riding on a motorcycle, authorities said. Security officials said the explosion set on fire multiple vehicles at Pishin Stop in the provincial capital of Balochistan.

The dead and injured were shifted to Quetta's Civil Hospital and Combined Military Hospital (CMH). The nature of blast is yet to be ascertained.

Mineral-rich Balochistan, where Gwader is located, has been plagued for decades by a separatist insurgency and sectarian killings.
