Pakistan’s Interior Ministry issues a second threat alert in less than two weeks. The alert has been issued in the wake of recent terrorist attacks. It calls on authorities to maintain the “highest degree of readiness and vigilance possible.” “Highest level of preparedness and extra vigilance may kindly be ensured by all provincial governments, intelligence and law enforcement agencies to thwart any nefarious designs of anti-state elements,” the alert said.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), security forces killed at least 13 militants in Panjgur and Naushki on Thursday. The current danger bulletin also praised the awareness and bravery of Frontier Corps Balochistan members, claiming that they were vital in successfully repelling two terrorist attacks on February 2 that resulted in significant casualties.
