At least 10 terrorists were killed in an intelligence-based operation in Balochistan’s Hoshab area.
Terrorists attempted to flee their hiding place after the military cordoned off the area and opened fire indiscriminately, culminating in a fierce firefight.
Ten terrorists were killed as a consequence of the battle, including terrorist Commander Master Asif alias Mukesh.
Recent killings and attacks on security forces in the Turbat and Pasni regions have been linked to terrorists from this organisation. There was also a significant cache of weapons and ammunition destined for use against security forces.
