One Army personal and three Militants Killed In Shoot-Out In Pakistan’s Restive Balochistan

Balochistan has been the scene of frequent militant attacks and a long-running insurgency

Pakistani security forces have killed three militants during a shoot-out following a militant attack on a security patrol in the restive southwestern Balochistan Province.

In a brief statement, the military said on August 14 there was an exchange of gunfire after militants opened fire on a security vehicle near Shahrig in the Loralai district.

One soldier was also killed and two wounded during the exchange.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Baluch separatist groups have often claimed such attacks in the recent past.

Balochistan has been the scene of frequent militant attacks and a long-running insurgency by groups seeking independence for the mineral- and gas-rich province bordering Iran and Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban also have a presence there.
