Pakistan's army says "terrorists" targeted a military truck with a bomb on August 12, killing eight soldiers and seven civilians in the southwestern city of Quetta. He said a state of emergency had been imposed in the city and all hospitals were on alert.
According to ISPR, an army truck was the main target of the terrorists.
In August previous year, at least 74 people were killed in a suicide attack on the city's Civil Hospital, while another 60 were killed in an attack on a police academy two months later. "At least 32 others are wounded", Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti said following the blast, which reportedly targeted a vehicle carrying military personnel.
President Mamnoon Hussain, Chief of the Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa and deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif all condemned the attack.
"Our resolve won't succumb to any challenge", Bajwa was quoted as saying in an official tweet from a top military spokesman.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that an on-duty security vehicle was targeted in the blast, adding that 10 security officials were also among those injured in the attack. Militant groups operating in the province have previously claimed responsibility for attacking security forces.
The province has also seen a number of attacks carried out by the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi's Al Alami faction, a group with ties to ISIL, known for attacking Shia Muslims.
Bugti said, "It would be unfair to call the incident a security lapse". Police placed a cordon around the area and were collecting evidence.
Past attacks in the province have been claimed by the Pakistani Taliban, ISIL, as well as by Baloch separatist fighters who are fighting for independence from Pakistan.
