Bomb Blast Kills 2 and Injures 7 in Balochistan’s Khuzdar City

Two people were killed and seven others were injured in a bomb blast in Balochistan’s Khuzdar city on Tuesday. The explosion occurred at Agha Sultan Ibrahim Road and targeted a vehicle with an improvised explosive device (IED), according to Deputy Commissioner Khuzdar. This is the latest in a series of terrorist attacks in the region, which have seen a rise since the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) ended its ceasefire with the government in 2021. Last month, a similar attack in Khuzdar killed a police van driver and an officer, while in February, two officers of the Frontier Corps were killed and three soldiers were injured in an explosion in Kohlu district. Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo condemned the attack and vowed to thwart any attempt to destabilize the province. The TTP claimed responsibility for a recent explosion near Quetta Police Lines that injured five people.
