Suspected terrorists in two attacks on security forces killed six paramilitary troops in Balochistan, police said on Monday. Local police officer Hidayat Ullah said four troops were killed Sunday when gunmen opened fire on security forces in the town of Turbat. Two troops were killed in the southwestern town of Loralai a day earlier. No one immediately claimed responsibility. The attacks on troops came days after an attack on Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard killed 27. Iran claims that attack was planned and carried out from inside Pakistan. Pakistan has rejected the charge, condemned the violence in Iran and offered cooperation. Published in Daily Times, February 19th 2019.
