The Inter Serves Public Relations (ISPR) on Saturday said that four terrorists were gunned down by  security forces in an exchange of fire during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in the Awaran district.

The ISPR said that an operation was launched by the security forces after they received confirmation about the presence of terrorists in the central Makran range of the Awaran district.

The statement said that security forces also destroyed the terrorist hideout and seized a large cache of arms, ammunition and communication equipment during the operation.

The military’s media wing also said that “multiple hideouts and administrative camps of terrorists” were also destroyed in the operation.

News of the operation comes a week after the army killed four terrorists, including terrorist commander Ihsan Ullah alias Ihsan Sanray near the inter-district boundary of North and South Waziristan.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations, the terrorists were gunned down in an intelligence-based operation in Ghariom, Shaktu, near the inter district boundary of North and South Waziristan. It had said that Sanray had masterminded "numerous terrorist activities".
