BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Seven Pakistani soldiers were killed in two attacks in the southwest mineral-rich Baluchistan province, the Pakistani military said on Tuesday.

The army’s media wing said in a statement that six of the seven soldiers were killed by an explosive device during their return late Monday evening from a routine patrol to their camp in Bir Ghayb in the Mash district of Baluchistan province.

The statement added that another soldier was killed during an exchange of fire with gunmen in the Mand district of Kish district.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks in Baluchistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan.

Baluchistan is located in the middle of the Sino-Pakistani economic corridor, which cost an estimated $ 60 billion to build, and is part of the belt and road project overseen by Beijing.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
