Regional TerrorismArmy conducts combing operation in Rawalpindi district, arrests key terrorists

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: Pakistan army nabbed six terrorists including two important terrorist commanders while carrying out combing operation last night in Kallar Sayedan and Gujar Khan areas of Rawalpindi district.

In a press release issued on Friday, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that cache of arms and ammunition including prepared improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were also recovered from the possession of arrested terrorists.

The COAS had also directed commanders to provide all necessary assistance to provincial law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in their capacity building through training, resourcing and planning so as to integrate them effectively in counter terrorism operations.
