Security forces in an intelligence-based operation in Kulachi tehsil of Dera Ismail Khan on Thursday killed two terrorists involved in an attack that resulted in the martyrdom of Major Ishaq in November last year, says a statement released by military’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) commander Zahir Shah and his accomplice were killed while four other terrorists were apprehended in the IBO, the ISPR statement said, adding that these terrorists were again on the mission of planting an improvised explosive device (IED) in the area.
Security forces were tracing the attackers based on intelligence lead and successfully found them, concluded the ISPR statement.
Major Ishaq, 28, embraced martyrdom during a clash with terrorists in Kulachi area on November 22, when the army raided the house of TTP commander Zahir Shah in Musa Zai Mohllah. During the firing, a soldier got injured and Major Ishaq ran to rescue him, injuring himself as a result. The major later succumbed to his injuries.
Meanwhile, the Frontier Constabulary, Balochistan, apprehended 15 suspects, including eight terrorists involved in an attack on police, in intelligence-based operations in Zhob, Sibbi, Dera Murad Jamali, Mach and Killi Ismail areas.
According to the ISPR, these IBOs were part of the Operation Raddul Fasaad in which 70 kilogrammes of explosives, weapons and ammunition and communication equipment were seized.
