RAWALPINDI: A major terrorism activity was averted in North Waziristan on Friday after security forces successfully conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) on a militants’ hideout, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
The military’s media wing said that two hardcore terrorists including an improvised explosive device (IED) specialist were killed during the operation in North Waziristan. One terrorist was also arrested during the intelligence-based operation (IBO), the ISPR added.
According to ISPR, the wanted terrorists were involved in the killing of innocent people, extortion kidnapping and other crimes.
