Security forces in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Tank district conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) and killed seven terrorists. The operation was carried out in response to reports of terrorist presence in the area of Kiri Machan Khel. The intense exchange of fire resulted in the elimination of the terrorists and the recovery of weapons and ammunition. The ISPR also mentioned the support of locals in the operation and the ongoing effort to eliminate any remaining militants in the area. This comes amid an increase in terror activities in KP and Balochistan after the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan ended its ceasefire with the government. Several security personnel have been martyred in recent attacks, highlighting the ongoing threat of terrorism in the region.
