PESHAWAR – Pakistani security forces killed at least four notorious terrorists including a high value target during an operation in the capital of the country's northwestern region neighboring Afghanistan.

In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said four militants were killed by armed forces during an operation in the general area of Badaber in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Peshawar district.

Forces conducted the operation based of intelligence information about the presence of terrorists in the region.

The military's media wing said our soldiers engaged the militants’ location and four terrorists were nuetralised. The dead militants were commander Samiullah alias Shenay, terrorist commander Salman alias Ahmed, Imran alias Muhammad and Hazrat Umar alias Khalid.

It was reported that militants were highly wanted by armed forces as they remained actively involved in numerous terrorist activities, including extortion and targeted killings in the area.

Forces also recovered weapons, ammunition and explosives were also recovered from them.

Pakistan's southwestern and northwestern regions are witnessing a sharp increase in terror activities in recent times, as TTP and its spolinter groups ended its ceasefire with the government in November last year.
