Shah Noorani shrine
KHUZDAR: There are reports that Saturday’s suicide attack in Shah Noorani’s shrine, that left more than 60 people and over 120 wounded near Khuzdar city of Balochistan, was carried out by Islamic State (IS).
The IS claimed the attack through Amaq, its affiliated news agency.
“35 dead and 95 wounded Shiite visitors in a martyrdom operation attack by the Islamic State fighter that targeted a shrine in a city in Balochistan,” the agency said.
The jihadist group had also claimed responsibility for the last Quetta police academy.
Militants are often targeting Sufi shrines saying that the pilgrims are heresy.
Baluchistan is in the center of militants’ coordination. The province is nowadays serving as a key link in $46 billion Pakistan-China Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Reports said IS, which had earlier struggled to gain a foothold in Pakistan because of competition from already established groups, has now forged alliances with local affiliates including the anti-Shiite Lashkar-e-Jhangvi group.
