During the night between Monday and Tuesday (December 11 and 12, 2023), 27 terrorists were killed during various operations in Dera Ismail Khan District, said Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). During these operations, 25 army soldiers embraced martyrdom while fighting valiantly.
An intelligence based operation was conducted in general area Darazinda on reported presence of terrorists. During the conduct of operation, terrorists’ hideout was busted and seventeen terrorists were sent to hell.
In another intelligence-based operation in general area Kulachi, own troops effectively engaged terrorists’ location as a result of which four terrorists were sent to hell. However, after intense exchange of fire, two brave sons of soil, having fought gallantly, embraced shahadat.
The killed terrorists were actively involved in numerous terrorist activities against security forces as well as killing of innocent civilians. Weapons, ammunition and explosives were also recovered during the operations.
In early hours of Tuesday, a group of six terrorists attacked a security forces’ post in general area Daraban. The attempt to enter the post was effectively thwarted which forced the terrorists to ram an explosive laden vehicle into the post, followed by a suicide bombing attack. The resulting blasts led to the collapse of the building, causing multiple causalities; 23 brave soldiers embraced shahadat, while all six terrorists were effectively engaged and sent to hell.
Sanitisation operations are being conducted to eliminate any other terrorist present in the area, as security forces of Pakistan are determined to wipe out the menace of terrorism from the country and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthens our resolve, ISPR said in a statement.
President Dr Arif Alvi strongly condemned the terrorist attack on the building of security forces in DI Khan. He said, “The sacrifices of the martyrs will not go in vain. Such cowardly acts cannot demoralise the security forces.”
