ISLAMABAD:

Security forces killed eight terrorists during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s (K-P) Dera Ismail Khan district, the military’s media wing said in a statement released on Saturday.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) stated that the terrorists were killed during an intense exchange of fire between them and the army personnel. Arms, ammunition, and explosives were also recovered from the terrorists’ possession.

As per the ISPR, the terrorists were engaged in various criminal activities, including attacks on security forces and the deliberate targeting of innocent civilians.

The same day, the ISPR reported that a soldier of the Frontier Corps Balochistan was martyred and four terrorists were killed as security forces repulsed an attack on a naval base in Turbat.

The military’s media wing said terrorists attempted to attack PNS Siddique in Turbat on the night of March 26. The attempt was foiled due to the “swift and effective response by the troops ensuring the safety and security of personnel and assets”.

The Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), the most prominent of several separatist groups in Balochistan, claimed responsibility for the assault in a statement.

The martyred soldier was identified as 24-year-old Sepoy Noman Fareed from Muzaffargarh, serving with FC Balochistan.
