Pakistan’s security forces have carried out two separate operations in the North Waziristan district, resulting in the demise of 10 militants and the injury of three others, as reported by the military media wing, ISPR.

These operations come in the midst of escalating militant violence in the western provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, which share borders with Afghanistan. This surge follows the cessation of a fragile ceasefire between the government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) conglomerate in November 2022.

In response to the militants’ activities, Pakistani security forces have been conducting Intelligence-Based Operations (IBOs) in remote areas of these provinces.

During one such operation, eight militants were eliminated, followed by a thorough sanitization effort.

Another operation in North Waziristan intercepted a group of five terrorists attempting to cross the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, resulting in the demise of two militants and the injury of three others following an exchange of fire.

The statement reiterated Pakistan’s plea to the Interim Afghan Government to ensure effective border management to prevent the exploitation of Afghan soil by terrorists for attacks against Pakistan.
