A possible terror attack was foiled by the Balochistan Levies force in Kohlu district in the early hours of Sunday.
Briefing the media, Deputy Commissioner Kohlu Agha Naveed said the Baloch Levies recovered a large cache of weapons and explosives during an operation on a militant hideout near Tehsil Kahan’s Soraf Nala area. They were acting upon an intelligence tip-off provided by security agencies.
At least 181 RPG-7 rockets, 172 fuses, MMRR 75 gun and 80 rounds were recovered by the security forces.
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.
