The ISIS group has claimed responsibility for recent attacks in Balochistan, Pakistan. According to Pakistani media reports, these attacks resulted in the deaths of at least 26 people and left 50 others wounded.

The ISIS branch in Khorasan, which is considered one of the destabilizing factors in Pakistan, claimed responsibility for two explosions. One targeted the election office of Essa Khan Khel in the Pishin area, and the other targeted the residence of Maulana Fazlur Rahman, the leader of Pakistan’s Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, outside his election office.

Geo News reported that as a result of these attacks, at least 26 people lost their lives, and 50 others were wounded.

These explosions occurred on Wednesday, one day before Pakistan’s parliamentary elections, and both attacks targeted election headquarters.

The recent surge in terrorist attacks in Pakistan, including this blast in Balochistan, casts a shadow over the country’s upcoming elections.

Before this incident, at least 10 individuals were killed in an armed attack by quasi-militants on a police station in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The security threats faced by Pakistani officials, politicians, and the public have intensified ahead of the nationwide elections scheduled for Thursday. This attack underscores the escalating tensions surrounding the electoral process.
