Four terrorists gunned down by security forces in KP
This is the second time in four days that terrorists have been gunned down by security forces in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Security forces gunned down four terrorists, including a commander, in two separate intelligence-based operations (IBOs) conducted on Tuesday in KP’s Bajaur and Khyber districts.
In Bajaur, the operation was launched after the security forces received a tip-off about the presence of terrorists in the general area of Inayat Qilla.
During the operation, an intense fire exchange took place between security forces and terrorists that resulted in the killing of three militants, including commander Shafi.
The operation in the Khyber district was conducted in the general area of Tirah, where a fire change took place between the security forces and terrorists.
In the shootout, one terrorist was killed, while another three were injured. The forces also recovered weapons and ammunition from the killed terrorist.
