QUETTA: A group of armed men attacked two containers carrying relief goods for NATO in the Dhadar area of Balochistan on Sunday.

No one has claimed the responsibility for the attack.

According to local official of Balochistan Levies, two NATO containers were on their way to Afghanistan from Karachi when a group of assailants on motorbikes opened fire at them.

“They torched one of the containers and partially damaged another. One NATO container was completely gutted while fire tenders managed to save another from complete destruction,” Naib Teshildar of Balochistan said.

The attackers fled from the scene after setting the NATO containers on fire. No one was hurt in the attack.

Nato has started its exit from Afghanistan a few months ago. The route through Balochistan has become critical to Nato operations, as PTI-led activists set up unofficial checkpoints to block Nato supply routes in K-P since November 24, after a call by PTI chairman Imran Khan.
