RAWALPINDI: Security forces on Wednesday carried out a meticulously planned intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan district, targeting reported terrorist hideouts, the military said in a statement.

According to military’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), a fierce exchange of fire erupted between the security forces and the terrorists during the operation, resulting in the neutralisation of six terrorists.

The statement said that one soldier sustained injuries in the line of duty during the operation.

The slain terrorists, who were actively engaged in a series of terrorist activities including target killings, extortion, and abduction of innocent civilians, were found in possession of a cache of weapons, ammunition, and explosives.

Following the successful operation, the security forces have launched a sanitisation operation to root out any remaining terrorist elements in the area.
