At least 10 terrorists were killed in separate intelligence-based operations (IBOs) in Dera Ismail Khan and Pangur districts, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in statements on Saturday.

Security forces killed eight terrorists in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa's (K-P) DI Khan district.

The military's media wing said the terrorists were killed during an intense exchange of fire between them and the army personnel. Arms, ammunition, and explosives were also recovered from the terrorists' possession.

As per the ISPR, the terrorists were engaged in various criminal activities, including attacks on security forces and the deliberate targeting of innocent civilians.

Following the operation, the military emphasized its determination to eradicate the threat of terrorism from the country.

The ISPR stated that the men were “actively involved in numerous terrorist activities against the security forces as well as innocent civilians in the area”.

In a statement, the military’s media wing maintained, “Security forces of Pakistan, in step with the Nation, remain determined to thwart attempts of sabotaging peace, stability and progress of Balochistan.”

Last week, on March 26, the security forces killed at least four terrorists during another IBO in DI Khan.

The military's media wing identified the killed terrorists as Mustafa, Qismatullah, Islam ud Din.

"The killed terrorists remained actively involved in numerous terrorist activities against security forces and killing of innocent civilians. Weapons, ammunition and explosives were also recovered from killed terrorists," added the military's media wing.

The same day, the ISPR reported that a soldier of the Frontier Corps Balochistan was martyred and four terrorists were killed as security forces repulsed an attack on a naval base in Turbat.

The military's media wing said terrorists attempted to attack PNS Siddique in Turbat on the night of March 26. The attempt was foiled due to the “swift and effective response by the troops ensuring the safety and security of personnel and assets”.

The Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), the most prominent of several separatist groups in Balochistan, claimed responsibility for the assault in a statement.

The martyred soldier was identified as 24-year-old Sepoy Noman Fareed from Muzaffargarh, serving with FC Balochistan.
