Also in August, security forces had killed four suspected militants in a gun battle in the Kanak area of Mastung district and recovered a huge quantity of weapons, ammunition and explosives from their hideouts.

In May, three labourers building a highway were killed and another was injured in a drive-by shooting in Kech district, some 125 kilometres north-east of Turbat town.

The assault had come days after 10 labourers were killed execution-style in Makran division.
