Seven injured in Quetta attacks

Thomas, Muhammad Usman, Fazal Muhammad and Mohammad Anwar were identified as injured. Along with Qaim Khan Kakar and the General Secretary of the Civil Secretariat Staff Association.

Later, the banned TTP claimed responsibility for the explosion and described it as a suicide attack.

Second attack on Mano Jan Road

In the other incident, unidentified individuals riding motorcycles threw a grenade into the home of Nazeer Ahmed on Mano Jan Road. Resulted in the injury of a woman and her kid. The grenade detonated in the courtyard.

The grenade burst injured Nazeer Ahmed’s wife and son. The trauma centre of the Civil Hospital admitted them.

Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi were playing an exhibition game. The game was taking place a few kilometres away at the Akbar Bugti Stadium when the attack occurred.

The attacks in the capital of Balochistan were the most recent in a string of terrorist attacks which increased since the armed TTP ended the government’s ceasefire in 2021.

A suicide bomber targeted a mosque in Peshawar’s Police Lines on Jan 30. As a result over 84 persons were dead, according to statistics provided by the local police.

At first, the banned TTP claimed responsibility for the assault, but afterwards disassociated itself. Although sources previously suggested that it might have been the work of a local faction of the prohibited organization. Since 2018, January has been the deadliest month. Resulting in 134 fatalities (a 139% increase), and 254 injuries in at least 44 militant assaults around the nation.
