According to CTD officials and reports in GeoTV, the search operation has been completed in the area. The bodies of terrorists have been shifted to Civil Hospital Quetta for identification. CTD said that a huge quantity of arms and ammunition were discovered from terrorists’ possession.

Balochistan — Pakistan’s largest province in terms of land area — has long been plagued by an insurgency and targetted killings. However, security forces have conducted effective operations across the province cracking down on militants in recent years.

Following the beginning of Operation Raddul Fasaad, security forces intensified intelligence-based and combing operations in an effort to establish peace in the province. This has led to a considerable drop in militancy in the province but scattered attacks do take place there at times, with security personnel often seizing arms and ammunition dumped in far-flung areas.
