One soldier embraced a martyr and three others were injured after gunmen attacked security vehicle vehicles during a routine patrol in the Kech district of Balochistan, the Pakistani Army said Saturday.
According to ISPR, a soldier identified as Lance Naik Javed Karim was martyred in a shootout with terrorists.
So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Security forces have been fighting the Baloch separatist group in the province for more than a decade.
In recent months, Baloch separatists have stepped up their attacks and are now attacking their targets in neighboring Sindh province.
On June 29, four terrorists from the Baloch Liberation Army attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi. The attackers were killed by Karachi police after they killed three people inside the stock exchange complex.
It was the second attack on security forces in Balochistan this month. On July 14, at least three soldiers were martyred after a convoy of security forces was attacked in Panjgur.
In May, at least seven soldiers were martyred in two separate attacks on Mach and Kech.
