RAWALPINDI: Frontier Corps (FC) and intelligence agencies foiled a major terror plot near Loralai, Balochistan on Thursday as part of the ongoing countrywide Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
FC and intelligence agencies conducted a joint targeted operation in Killi Shah Karaiz area of Balochistan against Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)/Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA) network led by Wahab Zakhbail, the ISPR statement said on Friday.
The forces recovered 23 Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) during the operation. The IEDs had reportedly been transported to the area by TTP elements to target Law Enforcement Agencies’ (LEAs) vehicles and Loralai University buses carrying students.
The timely action by LEAs averted a major terrorist incident, the ISPR statement added.
