QUETTA: As many as 20 suspected terrorists were rounded up during various Intelligence-Based Operations (IBOs) conducted in numerous areas of Balochistan by Frontier Corps (FC), Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Sunday.
The IBOs were conducted in Gish Kaur, Buleda, Tratha and Pishin areas, the Pakistan army’s media cell further said.
A large cache of arms and ammunition including RPG grenades, sub-machine guns and snipers were recovered during the raids.
Other equipment, including communication devices, Global Positioning System (GPS) and laptops, were also seized.
In similar IBOs on Saturday, FC had conducted raids in Shirani, Dera Murad Jamali.
The military action was part of Operation Raad-ul-Fasaad during which the army successfully recovered weapons, ammunition, mobile SIMs and communication equipment that were being used to harm the peace in Balochistan, the ISPR said.
Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, or Elimination of Discord, was launched in February last after a sharp uptick in terrorist attacks in the country.
