Four terrorists killed in North Waziristan operation

At least four terrorists were killed in an Intelligence-based Operation (IBO) in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan district, the military said on Monday.

“On the night of March 27 security forces conducted an Intelligence Based Operation on [the] reported presence of terrorists in general area Jhallar Fort, North Waziristan District,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

It added that during the intense exchange of fire, four terrorists got killed and one of them was identified as terrorist Zar Saad Ullah.

“Identification of the remaining [terrorists] is in progress,” the military’s media wing said. “Weapons and ammunition were also recovered from the killed terrorists.”

According to the statement, the terrorists remained actively involved in terrorist activities against security forces.

Concluding, the ISPR said that the locals of the area appreciated the operation and expressed their full support to eliminate the menace of terrorism from the area.

Security forces on Thursday conducted an intelligence-based operation in North Waziristan district on reports of a terrorists’ hideout in the Ghulam Khan Khel area, the military said.

Last month, a large number of weapons, ammunition and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were recovered from a hideout during a search operation in the district.

On January 18, two terrorists were killed in an exchange of fire during an IBO in the Thal area of the district.

In December last year, at least four soldiers were martyred and one terrorist was arrested during an IBO in North Waziristan.
