Three police officials and a Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel were martyred while a terrorist was killed on Sunday after police and Levies check posts in the Dhana Sar area of Balochistan’s Sherani subdistrict came under attack.

Sherani Deputy Commissioner (DC) Bilal Shabbir confirmed the fatalities, adding that the exchange of fire between the security forces and the terrorists continued for almost two hours.

He said another FC personnel was injured, whose condition was out of danger. A terrorist was killed during the exchange of fire, while two others were injured.

DC Shabbir added: “The companions of the injured terrorists succeeded in taking them away. The body of the dead terrorist has been handed over to the CTD (Counter-Terrorism Department).

He further said that the bodies of the martyrs have been taken to Zhob District Headquarters Hospital.

Stating that law enforcement agencies have cordoned off Dhana Sar and the surrounding areas, the DC added that the CTD has collected evidence from the incident’s site and has initiated its probe.

Meanwhile, Sherani District Health Officer Dr Daulat Khan told that a state of emergency has been put in place at the Zhob Civil Hospital and that all hospital staff had been called to duty despite the weekend.

He confirmed that one body has been shifted to the hospital.


Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo condemned the “rocket attack and firing” on the checkposts and expressed his grief on the martyrdom of the four security personnel.

He also lauded the police’s and the FC’s efforts in killing one terrorist. “The terrorists cannot demoralise the security forces by their cowardly actions,” he said in a statement.

“The sacrifices of the security forces are a beacon for the nation. The security forces are ensuring the security of the country and the nation with their firm determination and courage,” Bizenjo added.

He went on to assert that the nation was “standing with its security forces in thwarting the evil intentions of anti-nation elements”. The chief minister also prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured personnel.

In a separate statement, Balochistan Governor Malik Abdul Wali Khan Kakar said all available resources should be used to bring those who were spreading terror in the society and sabotaging peace in the province.

“We have to show national unity and consensus to thwart the evil intentions of terrorists and saboteurs,” he said.

In a press conference last week, Inter-Services Public Relations Director General Maj Gen Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry said that the security forces conducted 13,619 intelligence operations this year in which 1,172 terrorists were killed or arrested.

“On a daily basis, over 77 operations are being carried out by armed forces, police, intelligence agencies, and other law enforcement agencies to rid of the menace of terrorism,” he said.

DG Sharif added that 95 soldiers embraced martyrdom in these operations.

Handout photo from ISPR shows the two martyred Pakistan Army servicemen — Major Saqib Hussain and Naik Baqir Ali.

Two servicemen of the Pakistan Army, Major Saqib Hussain and Naik Baqir Ali, were martyred on Sunday during a security patrol operation in the Balor area of Balochistan’s Hoshab district.

The military's media wing said that the operation was initiated based on credible intelligence concerning the activities of a group of terrorists linked to previous firing incidents on security forces and civilians and the planting of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the Hoshab area.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), while the security forces were establishing blocking positions to cut off escape routes, the group of terrorists attempted to ambush the incoming patrol and opened fire on the security forces.

The encounter resulted in an intense exchange of fire, leading to the martyrdom of Major Hussain and Naik Ali and leaving another soldier injured, it said.

The ISPR underlines the unwavering determination of the security forces, in sync with the nation's resolve, to thwart attempts aimed at sabotaging the peace, stability, and progress of Balochistan.

In the aftermath of the encounter, follow-up operations continue in the area, with the objective of apprehending the perpetrators of the attack.
