Three Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel were martyred and five injured in terrorist attacks in Quetta and Turbat on Sunday as militants have once again stepped up raids on the Pakistan Army and paramilitary forces in Balochistan. 

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), media wing of the Pakistan Army, FC personnel were on a routine patrol when terrorists attacked them. As a result, Lance Naik Syed Hussain Shah and Sepoys Faisal Mehmood and Noman-ur-Rehman sacrificed their lives for Pakistan.

It’s pertinent to mention here at least one officer and nine soldiers have been martyred and several injured in the ongoing spate of violence in Balochistan and the tribal areas of Pakistan. However, the Pakistan Army says it is ready to fight on every front – terrorists in the restive areas and coronavirus inside the country.

Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, Leader of the House in Senate Dr Shehzad Waseem, Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry and Minister for Science and Technology Shibli Faraz condemned the terrorist attacks on the security forces and expressed solidarity with the security forces. 

They said that firing on FC personnel who were safeguarding Pakistan’s borders was the worst kind of terrorism. They saluted the martyred FC personnel for their sacrifices for Pakistan.
