Islamabad, November 4 (Language) Nine heavily armed terrorists attacked a training base of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in Punjab province on Saturday morning, but all the terrorists have been sent to ‘hell’. The army gave this information.
A day before this, 17 soldiers were killed in three separate terrorist attacks in the country.
The Pakistani army said in a statement that terrorists attacked its air force’s Mianwali training base. He confirmed that three aircraft that had already been taken out of operation were damaged during the attack.
The Army confirmed that “the search operation at PAF Training Base Mianwali has been completed and all nine terrorists have been sent to hell”.
The statement said the operation was launched “to prevent any potential threat to the surrounding area following the cowardly and foiled terrorist attack on the base this morning.”
The Army said there was no damage to any PAF operational assets, although three aircraft already out of operation suffered minor damage.
Tehreek-e-Jihad Pakistan (TJP), a new terrorist group affiliated with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement to the media.
Condemning the attack, Caretaker Prime Minister Anwarul Haq Kakar said, “Any attempt to undermine our security will be met with firmness.”
Hours before this attack, at least 17 soldiers were killed in terrorist attacks in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Terrorists on Friday ambushed two vehicles of security forces in Pakistan’s south-western Balochistan province, killing at least 14 soldiers.
The terrorist attack in Balochistan on Friday is considered to be the most gruesome attack of this year, in which the maximum number of soldiers of the Pakistani Army have been killed.
Interim Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti said that the names of the terrorists involved in the attacks on Friday and Saturday “may have been different, but the enemy behind the curtain is the same.”
He termed the recent terrorist attacks as a “conspiracy to once again make Pakistan a hub of uncertainty and instability”.
Violence has increased in Afghanistan after the Taliban came to power in August 2021.
