RAWALPINDI: A suicide bomber along with three other terrorists was killed in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in the North Waziristan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Tuesday.

Security forces and terrorists engaged in a gunfight during an intelligence-based operation in KP’s tribal district today, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

After an intense fire exchange, four terrorists including a suicide bomber were killed. Arms, ammunition, and explosives were also recovered from killed terrorists.

The military’s media wing added that the killed terrorists remained actively involved in numerous terrorist activities against the security forces and were planning to conduct a high-profile terrorist attack, which was averted due to a proactive response by security forces.

A sanitisation operation is being carried out to eliminate any other terrorists found in the area.

“Security forces of Pakistan are determined to wipe out the menace of terrorism from the country,” the statement read.
