The security forces killed a terrorist during an operation in North Waziristan, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement on Sunday.

According to the Pakistan Army's media wing, the operation was conducted on a tip-off regarding the presence of terrorists in the area.

The terrorist was gunned down during an exchange of fire, the ISPR said. It added that the security forces also recovered explosives and ammunition during the operation.

Last week, the security forces had killed a commander of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in an intelligence-based operation in Mir Ali, North Waziristan.

It further said that a huge cache of weapons and ammunition was recovered during the operation.

Earlier this month, the security forces killed at least two terrorists during an IBO in Razmak, North Waziristan. “Security forces conducted an IBO in Razmak, North Waziristan on the reported presence of terrorists.
