Security forces successfully recover remaining five abducted labourers in Kurram
The security forces Tuesday successfully recovered five remaining abducted labourers from the terrorists in Kurram Tribal District, said a statement issued by the Inter Services Public Relations.
As per details, 16 labourers working at a mobile tower site in Kurram Tribal District were abducted by unknown terrorists on June 26.
On June 27, 10 out of 16 labourers were released and the body of one labourer was found. To rescue the remaining 5 abducted labourers, security forces launched series of Intelligence Based Operations in a highly inhospitable terrain under extreme weather conditions.
The terrorists were continuously tracked and pursued. In an Intelligence Based Operation on July 13, 2021, three terrorists were killed and Captain Basit Ali and Sepoy Hazrat Bilal sacrificed their lives for this honourable cause of rescuing innocent labourers.
With determination, the Security Forces continued the pursuit of the terrorists and on Tuesday during another exchange of fire, successfully rescued five abducted labourers.
The operation is still underway to apprehend and eliminate the remaining terrorists. The security forces are consistently endeavouring to ensure the security and wellbeing of the innocent civilians who have been wholeheartedly supporting the security forces in fighting the menace of terrorism.
