RAWALPINDI – A Pakistan Army captain was martyred during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Tank, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, said Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Thursday.

According to military’s media wing, the operation was conducted on reported presence of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorists.

During the exchange of fire, Captain Sikander, who was 27-years-old and hailed from Pakpattan — embraced martyrdom.

“TTP terrorist commander Khawaza din alias Sher Khan was killed. Weapons and ammunition [were] recovered from the hideout,” read the statement.

Earlier this year, security forces conducted IBO in South Waziristan District on reported presence of a Terrorists’ concentration, present inside a hide out.

According to a statement issued by ISPR on Tuesday, security forces cordoned the hide out.
During intense exchange of fire, 10 terrorists including 4 terrorist commanders were killed.

Weapons and large quantity of ammunition was also recovered from the hideout.
All the killed terrorists remained actively involved in planting IEDs, conducting fire raids and target killing of innocent civilians. These terrorists were planning to conduct more acts of terrorism inside South Waziristan District.

According to the ISPR, Pakistan Army is determined to root out the menace of terrorism from country at all costs.
