Several terrorists were killed and their hideouts decimated as the Pakistan Army, along with Special Services Group (SSG), successfully cleared the highest mountaintop, Brekh Muhammad Kandao, near the Pak-Afghan border.

“Terrorist hideouts were dismantled, and cache of IEDs, arms and ammunition were seized,” said the ISPR, military’s media wing, on Saturday in updates on the operation code-named Khyber-4.

At least 13 terrorists were killed and six others injured in targeted strikes by PAF jets, Army Aviation and artillery, said the ISPR on Thursday.

Operation Khyber-4 is part of Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad or Elimination of Discord, and was launched in February after a sharp uptick in terrorist attacks in the country. It is aimed at “indiscriminately eliminating the residual/latent threat of terrorism”, consolidating the gains made in other military operations.
