RAWALPINDI (92 News) - While conducting an operation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Kurram district, the security forces have rescued five kidnapped labourers on Thursday.

According to the Inter-Public Service Relation (ISPR), the terrorists had kidnapped 16 labourers on June 26. They freed 10 of them on June 27.

The ISPR also said that an operation is still underway to clear the area of terrorists.

Two soldiers, including a captain, were martyred in the operation on June 13. They were identified as Captain Basit and Sepoy Hazarat Bilal.

A day earlier, an officer and a sepoy were martyred when terrorists targeted security forces using an IED in Khuda Bux Bazar near Pasni.

According to a press release issued by the ISPR, an officer Capt Affan Masood and Sepoy Babar Zaman embraced martyrdom.

A search operation is in progress to apprehend the perpetrators.

Such cowardly acts by inimical elements, backed by hostile intelligence agencies (HIAs) cannot sabotage the hard earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan. Security forces are determined to neutralize such nefarious designs at all costs.
