The military’s public affairs division stated on Wednesday that security forces killed at least four terrorists during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Hoshab, Balochistan.

An IBO was started “to clear a hideout related to fire incidents on security personnel along M-8, in general area Talsar, Hoshab,” according to a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), in response to a tip concerning the presence of terrorists.

“As a result of continuous intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) of the area, a location of terrorists was identified and security forces were inserted [to nab the terrorists].”

According to the statement, four terrorists opened fire on the soldiers as they were setting up their positions to block escape routes.

All four terrorists were killed during the fierce gunfire engagement, and the ISPR also reported that a cache of weapons and ammunition, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs), was found on the terrorists’ person.
