    More than 100 militants killed in intelligence-based operations, claims ISPR


    The military's media wing on Friday evening claimed to have killed more than 100 suspected militants in intelligence-based operations carried out by security forces across the country, including Punjab, in the past 24 hours.

    “The intelligence agencies are making progress to unearth networks behind the recent terrorism incidents,” read a statement issued by Inter-Services Public Relations.

    In its statement, the military claimed that it had found linkages to militant support networks operating from across the border.

    IBOs and combining ops across the country including Punjab. Over 100 Ts killed besides sizeable apprehensions during last 24 hours.

    “The border has been closed since last night due to security reasons. No cross-border or unauthorised entry will be allowed into Pakistan from Afghanistan,” read the statement.

    Security forces have been given special orders to maintain strict vigilance all along the border, it added.

    "Army is for security of people of Pakistan against all types of threat. Nation to stay steadfast with full confidence in their security forces. We shall not let the hostile agenda succeed whatever it may cost," the army chief was quoted as saying.

    Security forces unleash bloody nationwide crackdown

    “Both the federal and provincial law enforcement authorities and police started a crackdown across the country before dawn, and scores of suspects have been arrested from different cities,” a government official speaking on condition of anonymity had told AFP early on Friday.

    He said the sweeping operation will intensify in the coming days.

    The Army had launched a search and strike operation in the Shalman area of Khyber Agency near the Pak-Afghan border, using heavy artillery, security sources said. Four alleged terrorists were killed in the Lower Orakzai tehsil of the Orakzai Agency during the operation, the sources said.

    Three alleged terrorists were killed during a search and strike operation in the Reggi area of Peshawar. According to officials, weapons and hand-grenades were also recovered from the militants.

    Four more were killed in Bannu during an exchange of fire.

    Six militants were killed in the Khyber Agency.

    A statement from the paramilitary Rangers said at least 18 terrorists had been killed in operations in Sindh overnight, while police officials said seven more had been killed by them.

    Two more militants were killed in a gun battle with police on Sariab Road in Quetta.

    Formal protests registered through diplomatic channels

    Earlier in the day, Afghan diplomats were summoned to General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi by the Army, which lodged a strong protest against the use of Afghan soil by terrorists to carry out attacks in Pakistan.

    The Afghan officials were also handed over a list of 76 "most wanted" terrorists by the Pakistan Army, DG Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor had said in a Tweet.

    Afghanistan was asked to either take "immediate action" against the named terrorists or hand them over to Pakistan, he said.

    Meanwhile, in a telephonic conversation with Afghan National Security Adviser Hanif Atmar, Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz underlined that the government and the people of Pakistan were in a state of deep anguish and pain at the recent terrorist incidents in various parts of Pakistan, which had resulted in the loss of precious human lives.

    Aziz had also told Atmar that the banned terror outfit, Jamat-ul-Ahrar, had accepted responsibility for the acts of terror, and expressed serious concerns that the terrorist outfit continued to operate from its sanctuaries and safe havens in Afghanistan while Pakistan's calls to Afghan officials regarding their existence went unheeded.

    of terrorism in Pakistan with impunity from Afghanistan. Most of the incidents in Pakistan are claimed by terrorist organisations with leadership hiding in Afghanistan. COAS said that such terrorist activities and inaction against them are testing our current policy of cross border restraint. COAS asked Commander RSM to play his role in disconnecting this planning, direction, coordination and financial support. COAS also informed him about list of terrorists handed over to Afghan authorities for action against them who are hiding inside Afghanistan since long.
    US General expressed his condolences on loss of precious lives in recent terrorist incidents and assured him full assistance in response to his concerns. The General also shared his plans to undertake special coordination at appropriate level between RSM, Afghan Security Forces and Pakistan

    The other terrorists were probably under observation anyway, and the Punjab operation was approved right after the Lahore attack.

    I assume they already identified targets in Punjab and were waiting for the go-ahead from the government to initiate the operation.

    Prophet S.A.W showed us the great Islamic justice of defeating terrorism..Just take the Banu Qurayza event as a case study..for their treachery and terrorism ...all of their able bodied males were beheaded..while their women were enslaved..such great example of justice in history...ensued the name of Banu Qurayza tribe would never emerge in terrorism..and it did not...absolutely fantastic...best cure to terrorism...is to terminate the terrorist and potential wanna be...

    We need to follow the great Sunnah and Shariah by example! Great man great justice..absolutely fantastic!

    In war there is no right and no wrong..its all about victory and defeat...the victors serve the justice...on losers...!

    Serious question marks..obviously there was an insider job protecting these sleeper cells..
