  • 142 terrorists killed in various operations in Pakistan. 
  • Forces conduct 301, 165 IBOs in KP, Punjab, respectively.
  • 752, 67 IBOs conducted in Sindh and Balochistan, respectively.

In the past three months, security forces have concluded around 6,921 anti-terrorist operations, killed 142 militants, and arrested 1,007 across the country to purge the nation from the scourge of terrorism.

These anti-terrorism efforts were expedited by the security forces to counter the recent resurgence of terrorism in Pakistan, the sources told APP.

The security forces have not only arrested terrorists and their facilitators, but have also foiled several attacks in the last three months.

In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, around 1,960 operations were conducted including 1,516 area domination operations, 301 intelligence-based operations (IBOs), and 143 area sanitisation operations. During these counter-terrorism combats, 98 terrorists were killed and 540 were arrested.

In Balochistan, the security forces conducted 3,414 operations comprising 2,980 area domination operations, 67 IBOs, and 367 area sanitisation operations in which 40 terrorists were killed and 112 were arrested.

In Sindh, 752 IBOs were conducted in which security forces gunned down three terrorists and arrested 344.

Meanwhile, in Punjab, 165 IBOs were carried out, during which one terrorist was eliminated and 11 were apprehended.

Pakistan, for the past few months, has been gripped by a spate of terror attacks with even the country’s bigger urban centres such as Karachi and Peshawar under the radar of militants targeting security forces with the aim to deteriorate peace.

Earlier today, two Levies men were martyred as terrorists stormed a check post of the force near the Babri area of Mastung district in Balochistan. The officials also said that the terrorists also took the weapons of the martyred personnel with them after the attack.

Sindh’s provincial capital recently became the latest target of a terror attack during which terrorists barged into the strictly-guarded Karachi Police Office leaving four people including police and rangers personnel martyred. The security forces killed three terrorists during a clean-up operation in the law enforcement facility’s building.

The Pakistan Army’s pivotal role in the socioeconomic development of Balochistan

Published

Along with the province administration, the Pakistan Army has played a key role in leading a number of socioeconomic projects. A determined effort has been undertaken to solve the issues and utilise the potential of the province, realising the intrinsic relationship between the development of Balochistan and the advancement of Pakistan overall.

In the face of security problems, the Pakistan Army has adopted a multipronged strategy that includes peacekeeping as well as socioeconomic development. By means of focused awareness initiatives, communities have been motivated to seize mainstream chances, which has resulted in the voluntary surrender of militants and opened the door to a peaceful cohabitation.

The Army and the Balochistani administration have placed a high priority on the construction of educational facilities, particularly in outlying areas, recognising the role that education plays as a catalyst for advancement. By equipping the public with the knowledge and skills necessary for a better future, this strategic focus seeks to free the people from the hold of extremism.

In addition, the Pakistan Army’s unflinching security has helped to usher in a new era of growth, supported by strategic initiatives like the Gwadar Port and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The Army’s actions to protect CPEC projects have received international recognition, and the Chinese Minister of National Defence has praised them for their commitment to regional peace.

The Reko Diq project is a highly promising venture that has the potential to become the largest gold and copper mine globally. This grand project has the potential to reduce Pakistan’s debt load and spark massive economic expansion, drawing in international capital and improving the nation’s economic prospects.
