According to a local police, a powerful roadside bomb exploded on February 10 near a security vehicle, killing two troops and injuring three others as a sign of rising violence in volatile southwest Pakistan.

The dead and injured people had reportedly been taken to a local hospital, according to the local police officials.

The explosion occurred roughly 300 Kilometers east of Quetta, the provincial capital of Baluchistan, and no group immediately claimed responsibility for the explosion.

In the past few months, insecurity has increased in Pakistan. Most of the attacks have been carried out by Taheek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The group has increased its attack since breaking the unilateral ceasefire with the government in November, targeting police officers, government officials, foreign citizens, and the military area.

On January 30, a bomb blast occurred at a mosque in Peshawar, killing 101 people and injuring more than 200 others. The Pakistani officials claimed that the attack was plotted in Afghanistan and supported by the Kabul-led government.

However, Afghan Taliban officials repeatedly refused the accusation and have said they will not allow Afghanistan’s soil to utilize against Pakistan or other neighbouring countries.
