The security forces had conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in the Nurar area of Bannu district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, resulting in the killing of three terrorists, said ISPR.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) stated that there was a fierce exchange of gunfire during the operation, with the terrorists ultimately being killed. The ISPR further disclosed that weapons and ammunition were recovered from the scene.
The ISPR also revealed that the terrorists were involved in activities against security forces and were responsible for killing citizens. The locals in the area praised the operation and expressed their support in eliminating terrorism from their community.
These recent developments come as security forces have increased their efforts to combat militants throughout the country in response to a surge in terrorist activities. Last week, eight terrorists, including a commander, were killed in an IBO in Shin Warsak, South Waziristan.
