Attack Edit

Well-armed militants invaded the Frontier Corps camp in Muslim Bagh early on 12 May 2023. Security officers moved quickly to organize a rescue mission for the hostages and to clear the area. Six troops and a civilian also perished in addition to the six assailants. Six other people, including a woman, suffered injuries.[1]

Reactions Edit

The military's media branch, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), denounced the assault and reaffirmed the dedication of security forces to preserving calm and stability in Balochistan. The attackers' immediate threat was removed by a successful clearance operation by the ISPR. The ISPR vowed to keep up intelligence work to identify the sponsors of the terrorists, find their enablers, and track down their links.[2]

Prime minister Shehbaz Sharif expressed his profound sadness and grief over the deaths of the soldiers and civilians. He reaffirmed the nation's support for the security forces and ordered that the injured be given the finest medical care available.[3]
