PESHAWAR – On Friday security forces killed a high-value terrorist and his accomplice from the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Sajna group in an operation near South Waziristan.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Mehmoodul Hassan alias Khwaja Madni and his accomplice were killed in the cordon and search operation carried out in the Frontier Region of Jandola.

The officials recovered weapons and ammunition from the terrorists’ hideout, said the ISPR statement.

The raid was a part of countrywide military operation – ‘Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad’, or ‘Elimination of evils’ – which had been launched days after a series of deadly militant attacks killed more than 115 people across Pakistan in just over a week, including civilians, policemen and soldiers.
