At least 10 terrorists were killed and one apprehended while two managed to escape after the security forces launched an intelligence-based operation to clear a hideout in Balochistan’s Hoshab area on Tuesday, the military said.

Terrorists were linked with firing incidents targeting security forces and civilians alike besides planting of improvised explosive devices on M-8, military’s media wing, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said in a statement.

As security forces were in process of establishing blocking positions after identification of 12 to14 terrorists’ location, they opened fire on the troops, it said.
