Pakistani security forces, foiled a major terrorist bid, in Pakistan’s south-west Balochistan province, and recovered huge cache of arms and ammunition, during an operation, officials said, on Tuesday.
According to paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan spokesperson, the forces carried out an intelligence-based operation (IBO), in Kohlu, a district in Balochistan province.
During the operation, huge amount of explosive material, mortar bombs, rocket-propelled grenade and bullets were recovered, from hideouts of terrorists, said the official.
The operation was part of the ongoing operation, “Radd-ul-Fassad,” in Balochistan province, a military offensive against the “latent threat of terrorism” across the country, which was launched in Feb, 2017.
Earlier, on Sept 11, a major terrorist bid was averted in the province, after FC personnel conducted an IBO and recovered 21 improvised explosive devices, which were to be used, to target Muharram (Muslim New Year) processions, the statement from the army’s media wing, Inter-Services Public Relations, said.
