The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has said that the combing and clearance operation at PAF Training Airbase Mianwali has been concluded and all nine terrorists have been sent to hell.
In a statement on the microblogging platform X, the PAF said that the successful operation was launched by security forces to eliminate any potential threat in the surrounding area following the cowardly and failed terrorist attack on the base on Saturday morning.
It said that no damage has been done to any of the PAF’s functional operational assets while only some damage was done to three already phased out non-operational aircraft during the attack.
The PAF said that the prompt and professional conclusion of the operation serves as a stark reminder to all enemies of peace that Pakistan’s Armed Forces remain vigilant and are fully capable of defending the homeland from any threat.
Earlier the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) informed that the security forces foiled a terrorist attack on a training air base of Pakistan Air Force in Mianwali.
The ISPR said that swift and efficient response of the troops ensured the safety of personnel and assets.
It told that three terrorists were neutralised while entering the base while the remaining three terrorists were cornered/isolated due to timely and effective response by the troops.
However, during the attack, some damage to three already grounded aircraft and a fuel bowser also occurred.
The ISPR said that a comprehensive joint clearance and combing operation is in final stages to completely clear the area.
