Radd-ul-Fasaad: Six terrorist hideouts destroyed in Balochistan IBOs

Last month, another major terrorist incident was averted by the Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan and intelligence agencies after conducting an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Sur China, Zhob district near Pak-Afghan border. A bomb-laden motorcycle as improvised explosive device (IED), hidden in nullah was also recovered.

Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, or Elimination of Discord, was launched in February after a sharp uptick in terrorist attacks in the country.
