"Terrorists targeted the Frontier Corps troops, employed for the security of the Marget Mines on the Marget-Quetta road using improvised explosive device," read a statement by the ISPR. 

The names of the FC troops who embraced shahadat are:

A large scale operation in the area is underway to hunt the terrorists responsible for the attack, said the ISPR. 

"Such cowardly acts by inimical elements cannot sabotage hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan," said the ISPR, adding that security forces are determined to "neutralize their nefarious designs even at the cost of blood and lives".
