The attack occurred in Washk district, about 345km south of the provincial capital, Quetta, on Thursday, security officials said.

"Balochistan Liberation Army [BLA] fighters conducted this attack, and it was a joint operation with the Baloch Liberation Front [BLF]," BLA spokesperson Jihand Baloch told Al Jazeera via satellite phone from an undisclosed location.

For more than a decade, armed Baloch separatist groups have been fighting for independence against Pakistani security forces, who they consider to be an occupying force in Pakistan's largest and least-populated province.

The BLA and BLF are two of the more active groups in the region, conducting frequent attacks against Pakistani forces, as well as on projects being completed under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a $56bn project that links southwestern China to the Arabian Sea through Pakistan.

Pakistani security officials confirmed the attack and death toll, with State Minister for Interior Shahryar Afridi condemning the incident.

"Enemies of the state should be clear that these sorts of cowardly attacks will not diminish our commitment and motivation," Afridi said in a statement released after the attack.

The attack targeted the convoy of the local commander of the Frontier Corps, a paramilitary force that controls law and order across much of the vast province.

Major-General Saeed Ahmed Nagra escaped unhurt, officials said, although two soldiers were killed in the attack.
