The overnight assault on the college left mostly cadets dead.

The New York Times Reports that the attack was carried out by 3 men, now claimed by the Islamic State, carrying guns and explosives. An additional 120 people were injured.

While ISIS has claimed the attack, Fox News is also reporting that “a breakaway faction of the Pakistani Taliban claimed its fighters launched the attack.”

ISIS and the Taliban are currently at war with eachother in Pakistan and Afghanistan, which ISIS calls “Wilayat Khurasan.”

Balochistan, in southwest Pakistan on the Arabian Sea, has seen multiple terrorist attacks in the past few months. It is sparsely populated but according to Al-Jazeera, “Balochistan is a strategically important province to Pakistan because of the high concentration of natural resources – including oil, coal, gold, copper and gas reserves, which generates substantial revenue for the federal government – and the only deep-sea port at Gwadar.”

  1. If you really are independent then why don’t you tell the people that these terrorists were Afghans, that they came from Afghanistan and that the responsibility was claimed from Afghanistan ?
