QUETTA: Balochistan Frontier Corps (FC) conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) recovering weapons, ammunition, mobile sims and communication equipment that was being used to harm the peace in Balochistan.
According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), the operation was carried out on Saturday in Shirani, Dera Murad Jamali, and was part of operation Raddul Fasaad.
Last year, the Balochistan FC recovered 18 hostages from a terrorist hideout in the province.
During the operation, 18 hostages including two Pakistani and 19 foreigners were recovered. They were kept as hostages by militants.
In another operation conducted in Gandimgozi Kaur, Balochistan FC killed two militants in a hideout. Arms and ammunition were also recovered during the operation.
Targeted operations have been intensified in the province recently to further intensify efforts to take targeted action against the terrorists and their facilitators including those providing them shelter in Balochistan.
Balochistan’s apex committee in August decided to continue supporting the ongoing action against terrorism in the province.
