Six Pakistani soldiers aboard a Pakistani military helicopter died as the plane crashed in Balochistan, the southwestern region of the country, local media reported, citing the public relations wing of the Pakistani military.

According to Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper citing the military’s media affairs branch, “all six personnel on board, including two pilots, have embraced shahadat (martyrdom),” reporting that the helicopter crash happened late last night.

The Pakistani military’s public relations wing issued a statement saying that the helicopter had crashed while on a flying mission in the Balochistan province, without stating the cause of the crash. 

The helicopter crash follows a similar incident in August, in which a Pakistani military chopper crashed in the unrest-ridden Balochistan region, killing six people including a senior army commander.

During flood relief operations in Balochistan in August, a Pakistan Army Aviation helicopter lost communication and is believed to have crashed owing to hazardous weather.

This comes as two Pakistani military personnel were recently killed in the northern Waziristan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan, a region bordering with Afghanistan.
