Eight teachers from the same school were killed in two separate instances in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province’s Upper Kurram Tehsil.

According to the local police, unidentified shooters opened fire on the instructors in the Government High School Tari Mangal’s staff room. All of the teachers were present at the building to carry out their exam-related activities, local media reported.

Simultaneously, in another incident, a teacher from the same school was killed while travelling in his vehicle.

Both incidents occurred in the Parachinar area of Kurram tribal district near the border with Afghanistan, officials said.

The police are searching for the attackers but have been unable to track them down.

Local police said they were gathering more information as they investigated the incidents.

In Pakistan, school shootings are rare. In a gun-and-bomb attack at an army school in Peshawar in December 2016, more than 140 people—mostly students—were killed.

In addition, in a separate attack, six Pakistani soldiers were killed by militants in an exchange of fire in the tribal area of the northwestern region bordering Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, three militants were also killed in the incident, but the army did not provide further details.

Recently, the militant groups have increased their attacks, targeting the army and ordinary people.

  1. Terrorists have so much freedom in Pakistan that they have started killing teachers. Pakistan’s administration is solely responsible for the situation in Pakistan.
