Pakistan Polio Team Attacked By One Again, Two Police Personnel Killed

Pakistan Terrorist Attack: Pakistan is a country where it is difficult to give polio to children. Terrorists target the personnel who administer polio every day. On Tuesday, once again in the restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, some unidentified gunmen shot dead two policemen accompanying a polio vaccination team. Giving this information, the officials said that the incident took place in the Tank district bordering the South Waziristan tribal district.

Shooting two policemen, the terrorists fled from the spot. According to officials, “After the attack, a police team reached the spot and cordoned off the area and a search operation is on to nab the culprits.” At present, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Let us tell you that in Pakistan, polio vaccination personnel are often accompanied by armed security personnel, because in recent years there have been many deadly attacks targeting people who have been given polio in Pakistan. Terrorists oppose polio vaccination, terming it as a western conspiracy to sterilize Pakistani children.
