BLA commander among six killed in Balochistan: ISPR
Six terrorists including a banned outfit Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) commander Saturday were killed during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Balochistan.
According to an Inter Services Public relations statement, Security Forces conducted an IBO on the confirmed presence of terrorists in a hideout near Jamboro, Harnai, Balochistan to apprehend a group of externally sponsored terrorists working against peace in Balochistan.
As soon as troops cordoned the area, terrorists tried to flee from the hideout and opened indiscriminate fire.
A heavy exchange of fire with terrorists continued for a long time. Resultantly, six terrorists including BLA Commander Tariq Alias Nasir got killed.
A large cache of arms and ammunition was recovered from the hideout.
The ISPR said such IBOs to eliminate perpetrators of terrorist acts in Pakistan will continue and they will not be allowed to sabotage hard earned opportunity for prosperity and socioeconomic growth of the people of Balochistan.
