Colonel martyred, 3 terrorists killed in Killi Almas operation in Balochistan

It was after receiving information on suicide attack that the border security forces launched the operation in the capital of Balochistan province.

In a statement issued by the media wing of the ISPR, a key operative of the LeJ, Salman Badeeni, who was the commander of LeJ Balochistan was killed in the operation based on intelligence reports.

Two suicide bombers were also killed during the operation.

The statement further noted that Colonel Sohail Abid of the Military Intelligence was martyred during the operation, which left four other soldiers injured - two critically.

LeJ, a group which subscribes to the hardline Takfiri Deobandi school of Islam, considers Shiite apostates and has carried out scores of bloody bomb and gun attacks in Baluchistan over the past two decades, majority aimed at the Shiite Hazara community.

Two of the injured soldiers are in critical condition, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement said.

LeJ was founded in 1996 as a militant offshoot of Sipah-i-Sahaba, a Sunni sectarian group that emerged in the mid-1980s.

In the past, Chinese workers have been attacked, killed and kidnapped in southwestern and northwestern Pakistan by Baloch separatists and Taliban militants, including in the area of the port in Gawadar.

Pakistan has also been battling separatist insurgents in Balochistan for over a decade, with hundreds of soldiers and rebels killed in the fighting.

The killing of Asif Chotu alias Rizwan alias Nasir came 18 months after police executed his predecessor and the then LeJ Ameer Malik Ishaq in an encounter in July 2015. Both groups claimed responsibility for an attack on lawyers in Quetta previous year that killed more than 70 people. Seven Lankan players had sustained injuries while six policemen were killed in the attack.
