Two terrorists killed in North Waziristan’s Datta Khel: ISPR
Two terrorists were killed in an intelligence-based operation in North Waziristan’s Datta Khel area, Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) said Saturday morning.
According to the statement, the terrorists were involved in attacks on security forces, target killing and kidnapping for ransom.
One of the terrorists was identified as Asmat Ullah alias Hafiz while the investigation is underway to identify the other, it added.
Security forces have also recovered a large number of weapons including sub-machine guns and hand grenades during the operation.
Earlier on Friday, three terrorists were killed in a clearance operation in Balochistan’s Kech. According to the ISPR, the operation was linked to an attack in Panjgur.
Four to five terrorists had fled and holed up in the Panjgur market area.
An ISPR statement said that forces had conducted an operation against “a makeshift terrorist hide-out linked with recent terrorist activities in Panjgur” in Balgatar and three terrorists, including two high-value targets, were killed.
The federal government, on the other hand, issued a security alert across Pakistan following the terrorist attacks in Panjgur and Noshki on February 3.
Heavy causalities were reported when security forces repulsed bomb and gun attacks but the fighting resumed when clearance operations were launched in the two areas.
A statement issued Thursday morning from the military’s media wing put the number of “terrorists” killed at 13.
It said nine soldiers embraced martyrdom in Noshki and Panjgur and four were injured.
