Dera Ghazi Khan, Pakistan – A loud explosion resembling a blast was reported on Friday near the government’s atomic energy department in Dera Ghazi Khan, Pakistan, an area controlled by the military. The impact of the explosion was felt up to approximately 50 kilometers from the site.

As of now, the precise cause of this explosion remains unknown. In 2012, terrorists associated with Tehrik-e-Taliban had issued threats to destroy this nuclear facility. Since then, this nuclear facility has been under stringent security measures. Pakistan also maintains a significant stockpile of uranium in Dera Ghazi Khan. This nuclear center is recognized as Pakistan’s largest. Official confirmation of the explosion is still pending.

Visuals shared on social media depicted firefighters, ambulances, and police vehicles rushing to the location of the reported blast.

This incident comes merely 48 hours after two separate suicide bombings occurred in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, resulting in a tragic loss of at least 65 lives.

In Balochistan, the detonation took place near a mosque when a suicide bomber activated his explosives close to a police vehicle, where individuals had gathered for a procession commemorating the birthday of the Prophet Mohammad. Similarly, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the blast occurred within a mosque.

This situation raises concerns about the security situation in the region and highlights the ongoing challenges faced by Pakistan in maintaining the safety and stability of its key facilities amidst threats from various extremist groups.
