Rawalpindi; On 20 May 2023, early in the morning, a group of terrorists attacked a Security Forces Post established in Zarghoon, Marget Area of Balochistan. The Post had recently been established to help check extortion efforts targeting Coal mines in the area.
Troops on the Post retaliated readily to the fire raid thereby, pushing back the terrorists. However, in the ensuing heavy exchange of fire three soldiers embraced shahadat while one terrorists was sent to hell by the Security forces.
Based on follow up ISR effort, likely hideout of fleeing terrorists has been identified in nearby mountains and a deliberate blocking and sanitisation operation has been launched.
Currently, the operation is progressing well and security forces are maintaining pressure to deny terrorists escape from the area.
Security Forces, in step with the nation, remain determined to thwart attempts at sabotaging peace, stability and progress of Balochistan.
