Security forces kill another key terrorist in North Waziristan IBO


RAWALPINDI – Security forces Monday killed a terrorist during an Intelligence Based Operation (IBO) in North Waziristan, according to military’s media wing.

A statement by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) states the operation was conducted on reported presence of terrorists in Dossali area.

During intense exchange of fire, terrorist Mobeen Majrooh who was involved in terrorist activities against security forces, target killing and kidnapping for ransom, was killed.

“Weapons and ammunition was also recovered,” read the statement.

The anti-terror operation has been intensified since the banned TTP unilaterally withdrew from the ceasefire truce on December 1, 2021. The month-long ceasefire was outcome of talks that had been facilitated by the Afghan Taliban.

Earlier this month, DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said that armed operations against the group had been relaunched since the end of the ceasefire.

Last week, security forces killed a terrorist during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in North Waziristan’s Spinwam.

According to the military’s media wing, a terrorist — identified as Saddam — was killed during an intense exchange of fire.

“Weapons and ammunition have also been recovered from the terrorist,” read the statement.

The terrorist “was an expert in planting improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and was involved in terrorist activities, target killings and kidnapping for ransom.”
