Pakistani celebrities mourn the martyrs of Army helicopter crash in Balochistan
Destruction in Paradise really matches the current situation of Balochistan province of Pakistan. The devastating flood completely submerged several districts. To the regret of many people, an army helicopter carrying six officers, including the commander of the Quetta Corps, Lt. Gen. Sarfraz Ali, crashed while carrying out relief activities. Like any other citizen, Pakistani celebrities were devastated and mourned martyrs (martyrs).
These officers were part of the relief operation in Balochistan due to the monsoon floods that started in mid-June and have claimed 500 lives so far, including 149 in Balochistan alone. COAS confirmed that all the personnel of this helicopter embraced martyrdom and added: This accident occurred due to bad weather and poor visibility during the rescue operation in the province. He continued that the copper carcass was discovered.
The helicopter disappeared on Monday after losing contact with air traffic control. The army launched a search operation that was hampered by the rugged mountainous terrain of the Las Bela region.
Prayers and condolences started from political figures and drama personalities. The loss of martyrs will always be remembered.
A very unfortunate loss. Salute to our brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. I pray that their families can bear the burden of their loss. May the souls of the departed rest in peace. Amen

May the departed rest in peace. Such an unpredictable life! There is only one way to live and I believe that is to live in the moment and be good to others. Long live Pakistan! #helicopter
