Prayer for Peace and Safety in Pakistan Amidst Recent Twin Bombing Tragedy

9 Febbraio 2024

We pray for Pakistan, where a twin bombing has claimed the lives of at least 28 people. These attacks, claimed by ISIL, targeted campaign offices of candidates in Balochistan province. Borders with Afghanistan and Iraq have been closed. Violence has escalated in the province due to its strategic importance, known for minerals such as copper, zinc, and natural gas. These explosions raise concerns about safety during the elections, leading to the deployment of police and paramilitary forces across the country.
