Turkey condemns terrorist attack in Pakistan

The attack took place in the sports area of the armed forces unit established in the Shreefabad area of Kabal tehsil.

The militant targeted the soldiers close to an army base in Swat Valley as they played sports. The bomber detonated his explosives vest near an empty lot where soldiers were playing volleyball.

Local reports said that the death toll may further increase as several were in critical condition among the injured.

The match was also being watched by civilians, and the casualty count could rise as a large number of people had gathered in the area, he said, adding that wounded were being shifted to a nearby military hospital.

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, one of the deadliest against the military in recent years.

Security forces and police have cordoned off the area and a search operation was launched to arrest the assailants.

The powerful explosion, which rocked the surrounding area, occurred in the Kabal region of Swat, a picturesque valley in the northern part of the country.

This is the second attack in a month and it is suspected that TTP will carry out more of such attacks.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and other political leaders condemned the attack. Pakistan says militants who escaped from Swat and elsewhere are now operating out of the Kunar province in neighboring Afghanistan. Abbasi said that no cowardly attack can deter Pakistan from pursuing struggle against the menace of terrorism to its logical conclusion.
