11 terrorists killed in Lakki Marwat IBO

RAWALPINDI: Security forces have killed at least 11 terrorists in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in the Lakki Marwat district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province (K-P), according to a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The overnight operation, which took place on 10-11 June, was launched in response to an improvised explosive device (IED) blast that killed seven soldiers on June 9, including Captain Muhammad Faraz Ilyas and Subedar Major Muhammad Nazir.

ISPR said the Pakistan Army troops effectively targeted the militants’ positions, resulting in the deaths of 11 terrorists and the destruction of multiple hideouts.

“Sanitisation of the area is being carried out to eliminate any terrorists present in the area, and perpetrators of this heinous act will be brought to justice,” the military wings’ statement said.
