ATTOCK, Jan 17: Terrorists targeted the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex at Kamra on Thursday morning, firing four rockets at short intervals.

According to police and administration officials, one of rockets landed on the roof of senior non-commissioned officers’ mess and two others hit airmen’s residences inside the Mirage Rebuilt Factory. The fourth rocket exploded in a field near the Qutba village, close to the Kamra Cantonment. No casualty was reported.

According to District Police Officer Tariq Hanif Joya, the rockets had been fired from a place about five to eight kilometres north of the cantonment. He said that security agencies were looking for assailants in the nearby villages, including Jatyal, Samah and Nullah Chail.

The DPO said that the terrorists might have entered the Attock area and escaped after the attack.

This is the second incident of terrorism targeting the Kamra cantonment in a little more than a month.

On Dec 10, seven people, including four children, were injured, when a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into a PAC school vehicle outside the Kamra facility.

The suicide bomber involved in the attack has not yet been identified.
