RAWALPINDI: Three terrorists have been killed by the security forces during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in the Awaran district of Balochistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Saturday.
According to a statement from the military’s media wing, the IBO was initiated on March 15 to intercept a terrorist group operating in the general area of South Awaran.
The terrorists were linked with firing and improvised explosive devices (IED) incidents along Turbat-Awaran Raod and surrounding areas, read the statement.
“Based on credible information, multiple ambushes had been laid along different routes in the area frequented by the terrorists for the last three days,” said the ISPR.
