On 9 December, an explosion rocked the Hussainabad area of Sohbatpur district in Pak-occupied-Balochistan, injuring four people, including two police officers. The blast occurred at approximately 10:00 a.m.local time, near the camp of a construction company working on a local road project. Police officials believe the explosion was caused by a time bomb hidden underground.
All injured were promptly transferred to the district hospital. One of the injured succumbed to their injuries while receiving treatment. The remaining three individuals, including the injured police officers, are currently undergoing medical treatment. Security forces have launched a search operation to identify and apprehend those responsible for the attack. No group has claimed responsibility for the blast so far.
This incident serves as a stark reminder of the volatile security situation in Pak-occupied Balochistan. The region continues to be plagued by violence against innocent Baloch citizens. They suffer targeted killings at the hands of the Pak Army. The Pakistan Army is targeting and monitoring Baloch people, and anyone who has the potential to raise questions is either killed or abducted.
