Six officers carrying Iftar items from Jiwani town were ambushed when their vehicle was attacked by four gunmen in the Gwadar district.
“Four armed men on two motorcycles attacked the Naval vehicle and opened indiscriminate firing on it,” a Baluchistan government official said.
He said out of the six naval officers in the vehicle one was instantly killed, while four others are battling with their life in the hospital.
“One of them died on the spot while five others were rushed to Karachi for treatment. One of them expired later on,” he said.
In a cover up message a spokesman for Pakistan Navy tried to downplay the event said only three Naval personnel were injured in the attack.
Baluchistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri condemned the incident and directed the police to submit a report about the terror incident.
“We will not bow down before the terrorists,” Zehri said in his statement.
The incident comes just few days after the ISIS claimed that it had killed two Chinese nationals, a man and woman, who had been kidnapped on May 24th from Jinnah town in Quetta.
