COAS General Qamar Bajwa arrives in Quetta to chair high level security meeting

QUETTA: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javaid Bajwa has arrived in Quetta to chair a high level meeting in the provincial capital 

At least 15 people including the personnel of the Pakistan Army were killed and over 40 others wounded when a powerful blast hit an on-duty army truck at Pishin bus stop in Quetta on Saturday.

Gen Bajwa will visit Quetta’s Civil Hospital to inquire after the health of those injured in the blast. 

He is expected to chair a high-level huddle to review the security of the province in the wake of the terrorist attack.

Following the blast, the army chief had strongly condemned the incident, saying that it was an attempt to mar Independence Day festivity. “Our resolve won’t succumb to any challenge,” Gen Bajwa was quoted as saying.
