Security forces in Balochistan's Harnai district were targeted in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack by suspected separatist militants on Saturday, October 10. The incident occurred in the Pari Chashma area and although no figures have been confirmed, casualties are feared among the security forces. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, although the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) are active in the area.
Further attacks of a similar nature are likely to occur in Balochistan over the medium term.
The security situation in Balochistan is complex due to the activities of several armed militant and terrorist groups, including the Pakistani Taliban (TTP), and various Baloch insurgent groups, including the BLA.
Those in Balochistan are advised to monitor developments, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
