Four terrorists killed in Balochistan’s Hoshab area operation

Rawalpindi: At least four terrorists were killed in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Balochistan’s Hoshab, according to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) report on Wednesday. According to the military’s media wing, the security forces conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) on the hideouts of the terrorists in Hoshab.

During the exchange of fire, four terrorists were killed, the ISPR added. The statement noted that a huge quantity of weapons and ammunition were also recovered in the IBO. It is pertinent to mention here that the country’s law and order situation has worsened over the past few months, with terrorist groups like the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan executing attacks on law enforcement agencies (LEAs) across the country.

Earlier on December 31, a Pakistan Army soldier embraced martyrdom while four terrorists was killed during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in general area of Jani Khel in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Bannu district. “During the exchange of fire, four terrorists were killed while a 25-year-old Sepoy Muhammad Waseem embraced martyrdom,” the ISPR said. Meanwhile, the security forces recovered a cache of arms and ammunition from the terrorists.

“The killed terrorist remained actively involved in terror activities against security forces and killing of citizens,” the statement added. The ISPR further said the clearance operation, however, continued to apprehend other terrorists in the area.
