RAWALPINDI – A combing and clearance operation at PAF Training Airbase Mianwali has been concluded and all nine terrorists have been killed, said military’s media wing in a statement.

The ISPR said the successful operation was launched by security forces to eliminate any potential threat in the surrounding area following the cowardly and failed terrorist attack on the base this morning.

No damage has been done to any of the PAF’s functional operational assets, while only some damage was done to three already phased out non-operational aircraft during the attack.

“The prompt and professional conclusion of the operation serves as a stark reminder to all enemies of peace that Pakistan's Armed Forces remain vigilant and are fully capable of defending the homeland from any threat,” it said.

A day earlier, 14 Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred after vehicles of security forces moving from Pasni to Ormara in Gwadar district of southwestern province of Balochistan were ambushed by the terrorists on Friday.

The Inter Services Public Relations in a statement said sanitization operation was being carried out in the area and perpetrators of this heinous act will be hunted down and brought to justice.

“Security forces of Pakistan are determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism from the country and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” the military’s media wing said.

Earlier this week, security forces killed six terrorists during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in an area of Zhob district of Balochistan province.

The ISPR said the operation had carried out on night between October 31 and November 1 on reported presence of terrorists in Sambaza area.

An intense exchange of fire took place between the troops and terrorists. Resultantly, six terrorists were killed while a cache of arms, ammunition and explosives has also been recovered.
