Dawn reported that an operation was underway by the security forces to nab the terrorists, who were initially cornered in a building complex.
The six terrorists, all from Balochistan, were killed on Saturday after a clean-up operation in the town of Muslim Bagh. The development comes after terrorists attacked a camp located in the town this morning. According to the information, there was heavy firing in the camp. Two jawans were martyred in the terrorist attack on the camp this morning.
Dawn reported that an operation was underway by the security forces to nab the terrorists, who were initially cornered in a building complex. Terrorist attacks have intensified since Pakistan’s talks with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) broke down in November last year. The organization is particularly targeting the police in areas bordering Afghanistan. As Dawn reports, in the last few months, the law and order situation in the country has deteriorated, with terrorist groups carrying out attacks across the country.
In a discussion earlier this month, experts warned that the TTP was colluding with Baloch separatists and local militant groups based in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. A development that will further worsen the already dangerous security situation in the country.
