At Least 15 People Killed in Northwestern Pakistan Blast”

The city has been put on high alert following the blast.

"On-duty security vehicle was targeted in the blast, 10 security officials were also among those injured in the attack", statement added.

According to the ISPR, army troops threw a security cordon around the area as fire engines reached the site to douse the blaze on the vehicles.

"The attack was aimed to lessen our passion to celebrate Pakistan's independence", the COAS said.

All the injured were shifted to Civil Hospital Quetta for treatment and rescue operations are underway.

"Incendiary explosive was used in the blast due to which nearby vehicles caught fire", ISPR reported. "Workers are also busy extinguishing the fire at the site", he said, adding that the holidays of all doctors in the city were suspended.

Baluchistan's Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti told media that a truck of the Frontier Corps was targeted in the blast.

The injured were rushed to Civil Hospital, where a state of emergency was declared. Local channels said the number of casualties could further rise as some of the victims were rushed to hospitals in extremely critical condition.

It is also a high-security zone which houses several important buildings, including FC Headquarters, Balochistan Assembly, Chief Minister House, Governor House and Balochistan High Court.

"It would be unfair to call the incident a security lapse", Bugti said.

At least 17 people lost their lives in an explosion near Quetta's Pishin Stop, Geo News reported. However, there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast.

ISPR Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a Twitter post that Chief of the Army Staff has condemned the attack and termed it an attempt to mar the Independence Day Celebrations.
