In an overnight raid by terrorists on a police academy in southwest Pakistan approximately 44 people were killed and more than a hundred wounded. The bloody game was played by militants began at around 11.10pm at Balochistan Police College. There have been several terror attacks in Pakistan recently and Quetta terror attack is just another attack showing that militants have grown stronger in Pakistan. Pakistan has sponsored these terrorists for several decades and now these terrorists have become a headache for Pakistan government.

Recently there was news in media that Pakistan military and ISI are training militants of ISIS. The Quetta terror attack should be considered as a lesson for Pakistan that it must stop sponsoring militants inside its border. Pakistan must start focusing on development and better relations with its neighboring nations.

While talking about Quetta terror attack, Sarfaraz Bugti, the home minister of Balochistan province, told reporters that the sprawling compound was attacked by three militants equipped with suicide jackets, revising down an earlier estimate of ‘five to six’ assailants.

He also said that communications intercepts showed the militants belonged to the Al-Alimi faction of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi militant group- which is affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban.

The Pakistan military has also repeatedly been accused by international rights groups of abuses in Balochistan, specially against nationalists demanding autonomy and a greater share of the region’s resources.

In August, a suicide bombing at a Quetta hospital which was claimed by the Islamic State group and the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar faction of the Pakistani Taliban killed 73 people, including many of the city’s lawyer community who had gone there to mourn the fatal shooting of a colleague.
