During an extensive search and sanitization operation in Balochistan’s Chaman area, a large cache of arms and ammunition, including IEDs, was recovered.
As a result of continuous technical surveillance and reconnaissance of the area, the location of the terrorists was identified and security forces were deployed to check it.
According to the ISPR, the Pakistan Army is determined to thwart efforts to sabotage the peace, stability and development of Balochistan along with the nation.
Earlier this month, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir stressed that “a handful of misguided elements” cannot break the resolve of the people of Balochistan and that the “armed forces are committed to peace in the province”.
“A handful of misguided elements cannot shake the resolve of the people of Balochistan and the armed forces are determined to ensure peace and prosperity,” ISPR quoted the army chief as saying during his visit to Gwadar.
The Army Chief also appreciated the efforts of all ranks and urged them to continue working with professional commitment for the welfare of the people of Balochistan.
The Army Chief’s visit to the coastal city is significant in view of the worsening law and order situation in the province bordering Afghanistan and Iran.
On March 6, nine security personnel were martyred when a suicide bomber carrying Balochistan Constabulary personnel rammed his motorcycle near Sibi.
The province has been wracked by violence fueled by ethnic, sectarian, militant and separatist groups.
