QUETTA: Security forces have seized a huge quantity of arms, ammunition and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) from a militants’ hideout during a search operation in the border town of Chaman, the military’s media wing said on Sunday.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said an intelligence-based operation was carried out in the Rehman Kahul area of Chaman to clear a suspected hideout of militants linked to recent violent incidents, including the planting of IEDs in Chaman and surrounding areas.
It said that as a result of continuous technical surveillance and reconnaissance of the area, “a location of the terrorists was identified and security forces along with CTD [the counterterrorism department] were inducted”.
The security forces then combed the area, recovering a huge cache of arms and ammunition, including IEDs.
“Pakistan Army in step with nation remains determined to thwart attempts at sabotaging peace, stability and progress of Balochistan,” the ISPR said.
