Six terrorists belonging to the outlawed Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) were gunned down by the security forces in an operation in the Central Makran Mountain Range, near Paroom in Balochistan, a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Sunday.
According to the military’s media wing, the security forces launched an operation in the general area of the Central Makran Mountain Range on information that terrorists were present in the area.
“As the troops started the clearance operation the terrorists tried to flee from their hideout and opened fire on security forces,” said the ISPR.
“Six terrorists belonging to BLF have been killed in ensuing exchange of fire. These terrorists were involved in attacks on security forces posts besides recent planting of IEDs on security forces convoys in Proom and surrounding areas of Panjgur,” said the military’s media wing.
The ISPR said that the forces also recovered arms and ammunition which were intended to be used for disrupting peace and security in the area.
“Security Forces, in step with the nation, remain determined to thwart attempts at sabotaging peace, stability and progress of Balochistan,” vowed the ISPR.
