A soldier was martyred and four terrorists were killed during a late-night terrorist attack on a Naval base in Turbat, confirms the latest press release from ISPR.

According to the military’s communication division, militants made an unsuccessful attempt to target PNS Siddique in Turbat on Monday night. However, thanks to the rapid and efficient reaction from the troops, the attack was thwarted, guaranteeing the safety of both personnel and assets.

The Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), one of the primary separatist organizations operating in Balochistan, acknowledged their involvement in the incident through a formal statement.

The martyred soldier has been identified as the 24-year-old sepoy Noman Fareed from Muzaffargarh, who has been serving the FC Balochistan.

The troops surrounding the base immediately mobilized to support the navy troops. All the four terrorists were killed in the operation.

“Pakistan Armed Forces remain committed to eliminating the menace of terrorism from the country at all costs,” read the statement from ISPR.

Earlier this month, an attack in North Waziristan claimed the lives of seven Pakistani soldiers. The attack claimed the lives of seven Pakistan military personnel including Lieutenant Colonel Syed Kashif Ali and Captain Muhammad Ahmed Badar. The funeral prayer was offered in Chaklala Garrison, Rawalpindi.

“Pakistan Army has consistently upheld the ideals of Faith, Unity, and Discipline and has always endeavored to set higher benchmarks of professionalism and loyalty in its unrelenting fight against terrorism,” the ISPR statement quoted the president while reacting to the incident.

Resultantly, the PAF hit the terrorists’ hideout in Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s interim government confirmed the border area of the Afghan provinces of Paktika and Khost were hit by airstrikes resulting in the casualties of eight people.

However, they have warned Pakistan of the consequences of conducting airstrikes in Afghanistan. Interim government spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid alleged that Pakistani aircraft conducted airstrikes on Afghan soil and hit the civilian population killing the lives of eight people including women and children.
