The security forces on Wednesday claimed to have killed two “wanted terrorists” during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Jahan Abad area of Swat, the military’s media wing reported.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said both the suspects — Asad alias Anas and Wahab — were being traced for their previous alleged involvement in terrorist activities in Malakand Division.
The ISPR said that the security forces received accurate actionable information about the suspects “crossing over from Afghanistan and entering Swat Valley for a possible terrorist activity”.
“Due to the effective security in place, both were traced to a hideout [in Jahan Abad, Swat] and subsequently killed during an encounter [with the security forces],” read the ISPR statement.
Moreover, two facilitators of the deceased suspects have also been apprehended, the ISPR added.
