Secuirty forces claim killing six terrorists in Lakki Marwat

On Thursday, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Counter-Terrorism Department and Lakki Marwat police conducted a joint intelligence-based operation in the jurisdiction of the Dadiwala police station, resulting in the killing of six terrorists belonging to the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

according to a statement issued by Lakki Marwat police spokesperson Shahid Hameed:

Security personnel carried out the operation after receiving a tip-off that the terrorists were planning an attack on the Abbas police checkpost.

Hameed further stated:

The terrorists fired upon the security teams from multiple directions upon their arrival at the terrorists’ hideout.

The police retaliated in response.

After the firing ceased, the police searched the area and discovered the bodies of six terrorists.

“A huge cache of loaded arms, ammunition, and grenades were recovered from their possession.”

An official disclosed:

Four of the terrorists who were killed have been identified as Ziaullah, Safatullah, Mohibullah, and Kaleemullah.

while the identification of two others was still underway.

The Lakki Marwat police and the CTD had declared these terrorists wanted for their involvement in attacks on the police.

It is noteworthy that in November of last year:

Militants opened fire on a police van travelling to the Abbas police checkpost in Lakki Marwat, martyring six personnel, including a sub-inspector.

Thursday’s attack is occurring at a time when terrorism in Pakistan is resurfacing.

In recent months:

The law and order situation in the country, particularly in KP and Balochistan, has worsened, with terrorist groups carrying out attacks with almost no consequences throughout the country.

Since the breakdown of talks with the TTP in November:

The militant group has increased its attacks, particularly targeting the police in KP and areas bordering Afghanistan.

Insurgents in Balochistan have also increased their violent activities and established a nexus with the outlawed TTP.

Last month:

A massive suicide blast in a mosque in Peshawar Police Lines claimed the lives of 84 people and left many others wounded.
