RAWALPINDI – A Frontier Corps soldier was martyred while two terrorists were killed during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Kharan district of Balochistan province, the military’s media wing said on Friday.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (​ISPR) in a statement said that security forces conducted an IBO in Hulmerg.

“Two terrorists, involved in various acts of violence/terrorism against innocent civilians as well as security forces, were killed and a significant quantity of arms/ammunition was recovered,” it added.
