RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The security forces have killed eight terrorists in District Kech of Balochistan, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.
In a statement on Thursday, the ISPR said that on the evening of February 22, 2023, terrorists had attempted to ambush a convoy of security forces in District Kech of Balochistan.
While alert and combat ready troops not only foiled this cowardly attempt without any loss of life, they also immediately commenced a follow up operation to hunt down the fleeing terrorists using ground and aviation assets.
Resultantly, on Thursday morning, a suspected hideout of terrorists was identified in Mazaaband Range where a sanitisation operation was launched.
In ensuing, heavy exchange of fire, terrorists have been killed while a large cache of arms and ammunition including explosives has also been recovered.
The ISPR said that the security forces of Pakistan will continue to thwart any attempt by inimical elements, on behest of hostile intelligence agencies, to disrupt hard earned peace in the province.
