Security forces on Friday killed two terrorists in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa's (K-P) North Waziristan district, the military said in a statement.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the fire exchange took place between the security forces and terrorists in the general area of Esham.

During the intense exchange of fire, it added, two terrorists were killed and weapons and ammunition were also recovered from them.

The military's media wing furthered that the killed terrorists remained actively involved in terrorist activities against security forces.
