RAWALPINDI (INN) – Security forces killed six terrorists belonging to a banned outfit Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Balochistan’s Central Makran area, the military’s media affairs wing said on Sunday.
In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the IBO was conducted on the information of the presence of terrorists in the general area of Central Makran Mountain Range, near Paroom, Balochistan.
It added that the security forces conducted an operation to apprehend them but once the troops started a clearance operation in the area, terrorists tried to escape from their hideout and opened fire on security forces while in exchange of firing six terrorists were killed.
“These terrorists were involved in attacks on Security Forces Posts besides recent planting of IEDs on Security forces convoys in Proom and surrounding areas of Panjgur,” the ISPR said.
In addition, arms and ammunition have also been recovered which were intended to be used by the terrorists for disrupting peace and security in the area.
“Security Forces, in step with the nation, remain determined to thwart attempts at sabotaging peace, stability and progress of Balochistan,” the statement said.
