The operation took place during the night of December 30 and December 31, targeting reported terrorist presence in the region. The operation led to a fierce exchange of fire between Pakistani forces and militants, resulting in the elimination of five terrorists. Additionally, the insurgents’ hideout was discovered and raided, yielding a significant cache of arms, ammunition, and explosives.
