COAS orders medical assistance to victims of Shah Noorani shrine blast

ISLAMABAD, Nov 12 (APP): Chief of Army Staff General Raheel
Sharif on Saturday ordered maximum assistance for evacuation and
medical treatment to the victims of the Shah Noorani shrine blast.
Fifty soldiers, 20 ambulances and two medical teams were sent
to the shrine for medical assistance. Due to difficult terrain and long distance, it took more time to reach the incident site, the Director General of Inter Services Public Relations said in a tweet.
Troops and medical teams were sent from Karachi and Khuzdar to help the victims. Later 100 more soldiers, four medical teams and 45 ambulances were also sent. Sindh Rangers ambulances and doctors were also on their way to the shrine.
Evacuation through aircraft was not possible since no landing strip was in area. However, helicopter evacuation would be attempted at night.
