Earlier this month, security personnel in the Balochistan province conducted an intelligence-based operation in the Hoshab district.
On November 13, security forces conducted an operation in the Hoshab area of Balochistan based on intelligence concerning the presence of externally aided terrorists in the Turbat area, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The security forces were “encircled” during the operation, which resulted in an “engagement” that resulted in significant losses for the terrorists, according to the statement.
In the course of the conflict, two troops, Sepoy Ramzan, a native of Sargodha district, and Lance Naik Liaqat Iqbal, a resident of Swabi district, gave their lives while battling heroically, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
