Five Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers, including one officer, were martyred when a remote-controlled improvised explosive device (IED) struck their reconnaissance vehicle near the Pakistan-Iran border, according to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Friday.

In a tweet, ISPR said, “1 officer, 5 soldiers embraced Shahadat as FC South Balochistan vehicle was targeted with remote-controlled IED while returning from patrolling in Buleda, 14 km from Pak-Iran Border, to check possible routes used by terrorists in the mountainous terrain of Mekran”.

Security forces were on routine patrolling to check possible routes used by terrorists in the mountainous and extremely treacherous terrain of Mekran, the ISPR statement added.

“As the FC South Balochistan troops were moving back to their base after assigned patrolling duty, reconnaissance vehicle of FC troops was targeted with remote-controlled IED,” the ISPR said.

The martyred FC soldiers have been identified as Major Nadeem, Naik Jamshed, Lance Naik Khizar Hayat, Lance Naik Taimor, Sepoy Nadeem, and Sepoy Sajid.
