3 terrorists, including close friend of top TTP leader, killed in separate operations: ISPR

security forces killed three terrorists, including a companion of Tehreek-i-Taliban leader (TTP) Maulvi Faqir Mohammad. Security forces killed three terrorists in two separate operations in different parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), the military’s media affairs wing said in a statement on Saturday.

Ghafoor alias Jaleel a close friend of TTP leader Faqir Mohammad’s was killed in an intelligence-based operation in the Bajaur district.

There were many terrorist activities that Ghafoor was caught up in, the ISPR said, adding that a security official was hurt in the exchange of fire.

According to another report from the ISPR, two additional terrorists were killed in a clearance operation in the Boya area of North Waziristan, which took place last week.

ISPR: “The terrorists were seen fleeing from Mohammad Khel Village toward Vezda Sar and were killed in a firefight.” This is what they said.

It was claimed that Faqir Mohammad was not hurt when a suspected drone hit a safe house in Afghanistan on Thursday, but now it has been reported that two people have been killed.

Faqir Mohammad was previously detained by the US-backed Kabul administration and imprisoned in Afghanistan’s infamous Bagram jail for years before being released. Faqir Mohammad was released from prison when the Taliban gained control of Afghanistan in August.

Two TTP sources who are in Afghanistan say that Faqir Mohammad was the target of what they called a drone strike on a compound in the village of Chawgam, which borders Pakistan.

According to one of the sources who spoke to the New York Times, it was being used as a base by TTP fighters from Pakistan who were crossing the weak border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Bilal Karimi, a spokesman for the Taliban government in Afghanistan, told AFP from Kabul that the bomb was fired from the ground.

A week after a ceasefire between the TTP and the government broke down, militants said that Islamabad had killed their fighters. It wasn’t clear who was mastermind of the attack.
