Security officials say at least 11 soldiers have been injured in a roadside bomb blast near a Pakistani paramilitary vehicle in a remote area of southwest Balochistan province. It has been revealed that the attack occurred in Sibi district on Wednesday. It was also said that the attack occurred on frontier patrols and at least 4 soldiers have been admitted in critical condition in 11 injured.
The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity and said that no group has claimed responsibility at the moment but similar attacks have been carried out by Baloch separatists in the past. According to information received, Balochistan has become the largest and least populated province of Pak. It is also very rich in the case of natural gas reserves and minerals. However, the benefit of Balochistan is not met by Pakistan's Punjab province.
There are incidents of violence every day in Balochistan. The Balochistan agitators have said that the anti-Pakistan sentiments have become stronger in the minds of the people due to kidnapping, torture, and killings of local people by the army. As a result, Baloch separatists have carried out several attacks so far. Among the groups seeking autonomy in Balochistan are the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), Baloch Republican Army (BRA), and Baloch Liberation Front (BLF).
