QUETTA: Two Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers were martyred in Balochistan’s Harnai district while on Eid patrol duty, a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations said on Thursday.
According to the statement by the military’s media wing, “terrorists targeted FC troops during their patrolling on Eid security duties.”
The martyred soldiers include Sepoy Yar Muhammad, 23, of Kuch District in Sibi and Sepoy Mehtab Khan, 19, from Laki Marwat, said the statement.
The area has been cordoned off and a search operation has begun, the statement further added.
In February, two FC personnel were martyred while a civilian passerby was injured in a firing incident in Balochistan’s Loralai city.
The attack was termed a targeted killing by police. The assailants had managed to escape unhurt.
