ISPR Reports 10 Militants Neutralized In Dual Operations

Pakistan’s security forces have carried out two separate operations in the North Waziristan district, resulting in the killing of 10 militants and the injury of three others, according to the military media wing, ISPR. These operations come in the backdrop of increasing militant violence in the western provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, which share borders with Afghanistan. This surge in violence follows the termination of a fragile ceasefire between the government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) conglomerate in November 2022.

In response to the escalating threat, Pakistani security forces have been actively conducting Intelligence-Based Operations (IBOs) in remote areas of these provinces to counteract militant activities.

During one of these operations, eight militants were neutralized, followed by a sanitization effort to secure the area and eliminate any remaining threats. In a separate operation in North Waziristan, a group of five terrorists attempting to cross the Pakistan-Afghanistan border was intercepted. This engagement resulted in the death of two militants and the injury of three others following an exchange of fire.

The official statement reiterated Pakistan’s call for the Interim Afghan Government to take effective measures for border management. The aim is to prevent the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for launching attacks against Pakistan. The plea underscores the significance of collaborative efforts between Pakistan and Afghanistan to address the shared security concerns and maintain stability in the region.
