“During intense exchange of fire, 1 [one] terrorist, Peer alias Asad was killed. [The] Killed terrorist was an active member of TTP since 2006,” the ISPR said.
The military’s media wing added that the terrorist had joined the Baitullah Mehsud group and remained involved in activities against security forces and after the death of Hakeem Ullah Mehsud, he joined the Shehryar Mehsud group.
