Lahore: At least six Pakistani soldiers were killed in a bomb blast on Friday when militants targeted their convoy in the strife-torn Balochistan province, the army said.

The incident took place at Kuch area of Turbat district when the personnel of the Frontier Corps were on a routine patrol, they said.

“The militants targeted a vehicle of the security forces and six soldiers of the Frontier Corps were martyred in the bomb blast,” the army said in a statement.

In a separate incident in the same area, four militants were killed in an exchange of fire when Pakistani forces raided their hideout during an anti-terror operation.

The Pakistan Army says a roadside bomb targeting security forces has killed six troops and wounded several others in the town of Buleda in Balochistan province.

In a statement on Friday, the military says it also killed four “terrorists” after coming under attack during a raid on a militant hideout in the southwestern province. It provided no further details and did not identify the slain.

Ethnic separatists have been waging a low-level insurgency in Balochistan, where Pakistani and foreign militants also carry out attacks against security forces.

A reason for the sporadic nature of the violence is that most of the Baloch freedom fighters live in exile in different European countries and the United States. The Baloch who live in Balochistan are mostly in thrall of the Pakistani establishment, it is believed.

Although Pakistan’s government claims it has quelled the Baloch separatists’ insurgency, violence has persisted in the province.
