The attacker had targetted the sports area of the armed forces' unit in the Shareefabad area of the tehsil.

The incident occurred in Swat district's Kabal Tehsil in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, the military's media wing Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement. The suicide bomber reportedly blew himself up in a ground where the security personnel were playing volleyball. The injured soldiers have been shifted to Kabal hospital. Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesman Mohammad Khurasani claimed they had sent a young suicide bomber, Siddiqullah, to carry out the suicide attack on the military camp in Swat. A large contingent of security personnel had secured the area after the attack and started an initial investigation into the blast.

The report said that the outfit noted that it was the second attack this month with more to follow.

The area of SWAT has been under Taliban between 2007 and 2009.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi strongly condemned the suicide attack in Swat.

"Coward enemy terrorists are no match for our valiant sons of the soil and no attack can deter us in pursuing our struggle against the menace of terrorism", Abbasi said in a statement. Pakistan says militants who escaped from Swat and elsewhere are now operating out of the Kunar province in neighbouring Afghanistan. The valley was brought under state control after Operation Rah-e-Rast was launched in May 2009 in Mingora which saw some of the most aggressive fighting between the Pakistan Army and militants in a bid to gain control of the valley.
