QUETTA: At least four militants were killed and seven others were detained on Friday by Frontier Corps (FC) personnel near Balochistan's Turbat region in retaliation of an ambush, DawnNews reported.

The incident took place 20 kilometres from Turbat in the province's Gaban area, a spokesman of the FC said.

FC’s assault was in retaliation to an ambush by militants on their convoy, the spokesperson added.

In two separate crackdown operations in Nushki and Naseerabad, FC officials recovered weapons and ammunition in large quantities.

The weapons and ammunition included 11 SMGs, three LMGs, 14 rifles, nine short guns, five rocket launchers and 100 rounds of SMGs.

However, no arrests were made in the operations in Nushki and Naseerabad.
