Balochistan: 7 Feb 2024: On Wednesday, a series of consecutive blasts in Balochistan's Pishin and Qila Saifullah resulted in at least 26 fatalities and over 30 injuries, according to officials.
These incidents took place a day before the scheduled general elections in the country. Pakistan has recently seen a rise in terrorism, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, heightening security concerns. The initial explosion happened in Pishin's Khanozai union council, located an hour away from Quetta, shortly after noon.
Jumma Dad Mandokhail, the district's deputy commissioner, informed that the incident occurred outside the election office of independent candidate Asfandyar Kakar, who is participating in the polls from PB-47 (Pishin 1).
