Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan foiled on Wednesday a “major terrorist activity” planned for Turbat area of the province.

“A huge cache of arms, explosives and ammunition, including rockets, IEDs, different types of weapons and communication equipment being dumped in Goubard, 8kms north east of Mand, for terrorist activities in Turbat recovered,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

Nationwide raids are being conducted across the country as part of Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, the new military offensive against terrorists. It was launched following a string of attacks rocked the country, killing over 100 people in February.
