Takfiri terrorists of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Sipah-e-Sahaba killed at least four family members belonging to the Hazara Shia community and their driver in Quetta.
Takfiri terrorsits opened fire on their vehicle near Balochistan’s Mastung area of Quetta.
Two women were travelling in the vehicle that was targeted by the assailants; one of them was among the four people killed, local police chief Mohammad Ishaq said. The other woman sustained injuries in the incident.
The family’s driver who was also killed was Sunni, Ishaq said.
According to police sources, the victims were on their way to Quetta from Karachi when terrorsits riding a motorcycle targeted their car. The assailants escaped unhurt after carrying out the attack.
The incident appears to be an act of targeted killing, police sources added.
Balochistan has been experiencing incidents of violence and targeted killings since more than a decade. More than 1,400 incidents targeting the Shia and Hazara community have taken place in the province during the past 15 years.
