KARACHI - Security forces are engaged in a gun battle at the Airport Security Force (ASF) camp number 2, which is located at the ASF academy in Bitai Abad, Pehlwan Goth in Karachi.
Heavy firing was reported at the ASF camp in the metropolis on Tuesday after unidentified men entered the premises. Initial reports suggest that the number of attackers could be between four and seven. News channels reported that sounds of explosion were also heard, causing panic among citizens in the vicinity. The Director General of Rangers has reached the site to oversee the operation. The camp is situated near the Jinnah International Airport which the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had cleared on Monday after a long battle between security forces and terrorists left 28 dead. A Twitter account allegedly operated by Omar Khorasani of the Taliban tweeted on Tuesday that the group has carried out this second attack.
