RAWALPINDI: At least four terrorists were killed while two security personnel embraced martyrdom during an operation in North Waziristan, said Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
According to the military’s media wing, security forces said that the terrorists were killed after the troops cordoned off the area following their observation of the presence of terrorists in a compound in Mir Ali, North Waziristan.
As soon as the forces cordoned off the area, the terrorists opened fire at the forces. During intense exchange of fire, four terrorists were killed, the ISPR said. The terrorists were involved in kidnapping for ransom, extortion, fire raids on security forces and IED explosions, it added.
During the conduct of the operation, Naib Subedar Amin Ullah, 42, resident of Chitral and sepoy Sher Zamin, 24, resident of Landi Kotal embraced martyrdom while four other soldiers suffered bullet injuries.
Earlier on January 24, security forces had carried out an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, killing five high-profile terrorists.
Detailing the operation, the ISPR had said that out of five terrorists eliminated during the operation, two of them were identified as Syed Rahim and Saifullah Noor.
