Seven FC troops, seven security guards martyred in Ormara attack


At least 14 men, including seven Frontier Corps troops and seven guards of the Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL), were martyred in an attack on a convoy of Frontier Corps in Balochistan’s Ormara area in Makran division, ISPR confirmed Thursday night.

In a statement, Pakistan army’s media-wing said an encounter between security forces and terrorists took place on Costal Highway near Ormara. It said that the soldiers were guarding the convoy of the OGDCL employees from Gwadar to Karachi.

“Security Forces responded effectively, ensured Security of the OGDCL persons and managed their safe exit from the area,” read the statement on the ISPR’s website. “During the clash, substantial losses were also incurred to the terrorists.”

The security forces have cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to arrest the terrorists, said the ISPR.

“Such Cowardly acts by inimical elements to sabotage peace, stability and economic development in Balochistan shall never be allowed to succeed,” read the statement. “Moreover, these acts cannot subdue resolve of our forces which are determined to defend motherland, even at the cost of their lives.”

Baloch Raji Ajoi Sangar (BRAS), an alliance of Baloch armed groups, has claimed the responsibility for the attack.
