A Pakistani army soldier was killed and three others were injured when their convoy was ambushed by terrorists in the restive Balochistan’s Turbat area on Saturday, according to the official.

The incident took place after terrorists opened fire on the security forces during their routine patrolling near Pidarak in Kech district, approximately 35 kilometres southeast of Turbat, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

“During the exchange of fire, Lance Naik Javed Karim was killed while three other soldiers got injured,” the ISPR said.

Security forces have come under increasing terror attacks by terrorists in Baluchistan and also the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in recent weeks.

Such attacks in the past have been mostly attributed to nationalist groups who want Baloch people to work in place of Sindhi and Punjabi labourers.
