Suspected militants attacked a security forces convoy in the Gichak area of Panjgur district (Balochistan province) on Tuesday, July 14, killing at least three soldiers and injuring several more. Reportedly, the Baloch Liberation Front (BLF) claimed responsibility for the attack, claiming to have killed more than 20 soldiers.
Similar militant attacks are possible in Balochistan province over the near term.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Al-Qai'da (AQ), Islamic State (IS) affiliates, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, Afghan Taliban, and other Islamist militant groups continue to pose a threat throughout the country despite continued army offensives to push them from their strongholds near the Afghan border. Pakistan has suffered numerous deadly attacks in recent months, notably in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan provinces.
Individuals in Balochistan province are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity, report suspicious objects and behavior to the police, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
