A massive blast near Pakistan’s Atomic Commission office in Dera Ghazi Khan, Punjab, was felt up to 50 kilometers away, triggering an emergency response. Videos on social media depict the scene, but the cause remains uncertain, with no confirmed casualties. This incident follows earlier suicide bombings in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa that claimed 65 lives. As terrorist attacks surge in Pakistan, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan after the TTP ended its ceasefire, the country vows to combat all terrorist groups, including ISIS and the TTP. In September alone, Pakistan experienced 99 attacks, resulting in 112 deaths and 87 injuries, mostly targeting security personnel and civilians.
Media reports suggest that Pakistan’s Shaheen-3 missile struck a nuclear facility, causing a loud explosion. DG Khan’s Commissioner’s spokesperson mentioned the possibility of a sound barrier breaking, with no reported casualties. Videos on social media show the explosion’s impact. Pakistan’s army halted internet services in the area, limited media access, and advised residents to stay indoors. While there are theories about the missile’s misfire or a drone strike, officials haven’t confirmed either.
