On October 2, Pakistan Army eliminated two hardcore terrorists including an IED [improvised explosive device] expert in an area of North Waziristan, a tribal district of Khyber-Paktunkhwa (K-P).

“Security Forces conducted IBO [intelligence based operation] on terrorist hideout in Boya, North Waziristan. 2 hardcore terrorists including an IED specialist killed while one terrorist apprehended,” said a statement issued by the military's media wing.

The terrorists were involved in heinous crimes including killing of innocent locals, extortion, planning and executing more than 25 terrorist attacks on security forces.
