Punjab operation: Rangers arrest seven terrorists, 20 Afghan suspects
According to the military’s media wing, the explosives and weapons recovered in the raids were likely to be used for terrorist activities in major cities of the province.
Security forces have stepped up operations across the Punjab province following a string of bombing incidents during the past few months.
Last month, 26 people, including nine policemen, were killed and 58 others were injured in a bombing attack near the Arfa Karim IT Tower on Lahore's Ferozepur Road.
Another blast, targeting a census team in April, had resulted in the deaths of six people, including five forces personnel.
Similarly, a suicide blast on February 13 had ripped through a camp of protesting chemists in front of the Punjab Assembly, leaving 13 people dead and 70 others wounded.
