A soldier of the Pakistan Army was martyred as militants attacked troops stationed near the Turbat International Airport on Thursday.

The terrorists attacked the Pakistan Army troops, who were on security duty near the airport, with small arms, confirmed the ISPR.

The martyred soldier, Naik Aqeel Abbas, was a resident of village Mehro Peelo in District Chakwal.

"Such cowardly acts by inimical elements, backed by anti-state forces cannot sabotage hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan," stated the ISPR.

Last week four FC personnel embraced martyrdom and eight others were wounded in two separate terrorist attacks in Quetta and Turbat.

In the first incident, the FC post near Pir Ismail Ziarat was targeted by terrorists, the Pakistan Army's media wing had said at the time.
