Two wanted terrorists were killed in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) carried out by security forces in the Jahan Abad area of Swat on Wednesday, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The militants were identified as Asad, commonly known as Anus, along with Wahab.
The two were wanted for their involvement in terrorist activities in Malakand, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
Security forces acted on a tip-off that the two militants had crossed over from neighbouring Afghanistan into the Swat Valley.
According to the military's media wing, the terrorists were killed after their hideout was traced and an ensuing encounter took place.
Two facilitators were also apprehended in the operation.
On December 3, as many as 11 ‘terrorists’ of a proscribed militant outfit were caught during search operations in various parts of Balochistan.
Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, or Elimination of Discord, was launched in February after a sharp uptick in terrorist attacks in the country.
