"Fifteen people including seven civilians were martyred", the statement said.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the terrorists attacked an on-duty military vehicle. The city has been put on high alert following the blast.

The high-intensity blast occurred in a parking lot near Pishin bus stop which is in a high-security area in Quetta, said reports.

Daesh, a Takfiri terrorist group which mainly operates in the Middle East but has also established a branch in Afghanistan, has claimed several attacks in the Pakistani territory in the recent past.

The province has been the scene of a low-level insurgency by Baloch separatist groups that want a greater share of the mineral and natural gas resources from the area.

Quetta, the provincial capital of Baluchistan province, has seen frequent attacks targeting government buildings and security forces, as well as civilians.

Bugti said, "It would be unfair to call the incident a security lapse".
