KOHLU: Under the ongoing Operation Radd-ul Fasaad, intelligence agencies and Levies forces conducted raids and recovered huge quantity of weapons from Balochistan’s Kohlu district.
In a press conference, Deputy Commissioner Kohlu Agha Nabil said that the security forces raided Makhi Nala area of Kahan.
During the raid, arms and ammunition were recovered from the hideouts belonging to proscribed organisation members, said Nabil.
Three hand grenades, seven anti-tank mines, 477 LMG rounds, one kilogramme of explosive material, rifle, machine gun, detonator, five RPG-7 fuses, 400 yards of detonator cable and other weapons were recovered, he stated.
Balochistan – Pakistan’s largest province in terms of land area – has been plagued by an insurgency and sectarian killings for several years now. However, security forces have conducted effective operations across the province cracking down on militants.
This has led to a considerable drop in militancy in the province but scattered attacks are still reported at times.
Following the beginning of Op Raddul Fasaad, security forces have intensified intelligence-based and combing operations in the province in an effort to establish peace in the province.
