Template:Pp-move Template:Recent event Template:Infobox civilian attack From 16 to 17 February 2019, two attacks took place against Frontier Corps in Balochistan. The first attack took place on 16 February 2019, an unknown armed men killed two personnel of the Frontier Corps in Loralai.[1] The second attack took place on 17 February 2019 where four more personnel of the Frontier Corps were killed in the Gardab area of Panjgur district.[2] No group claimed responsibility for the first attack. Nasir Shah, a police officer from Balochistan, claimed that the first attack appears to be a target killing.[3] However, for the second attack which took place in Panjgur district, Baloch Raji Ajoi Sangar (BRAS), an alliance of three militant organizations, the Baloch Liberation Army, Balochistan Liberation Front and Baloch Republican Guard claimed responsibility for the attack.[4][5] Militants claims that around nine military personnel were killed and eleven personnel were injured in the attack.[6] However, the Government sources maintains that four individuals were killed in Panjgur while other two were killed in Loralai.[7][8][9]

These attacks were preceded by the 2019 Loralai attack in which eight policemen and a civilian were killed by gunmen and suicide bombers affiliated with Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan on 29 January 2019.[10]


Jamal Kamal Khan, the Chief Minister of Balochistan, condemned the attack and referred it as a conspiracy against region's development.[2]
