At least two people were held as Frontier Corps (FC) thwarted on Monday a major terrorist attack in Balochistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

"[The] FC foiled the terrorist activity by recovering 2,000 kilograms of explosives from a vehicle through an special intelligence-based operation in Spin Tezha, Killa Abdullah," the military's media wing said in a statement.

Pakistan Army launched Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad across the country in February this year in response to continuing terror wave, which claimed more than 100 lives.

Operation Khyber 4's first phase completed as highest mountaintop cleared of terrorists

The operation is aimed at “indiscriminately eliminating the residual/latent threat of terrorism”, consolidating the gains made in other military operations.

Earlier this month, several terrorists were killed and their hideouts decimated as the army, along with Special Services Group (SSG), successfully cleared the highest mountaintop, Brekh Muhammad Kandao, near the Pak-Afghan border.
