QUETTA: At least 20 operatives including nine commanders of outlawed outfits were killed in Kalat raids, officials said.
“Security forces, engaged in an extensive operation in the rugged territory, neutralized these low and high profile targets in the last 48 hours,” sources told media persons here.
On top of eliminating these threats, a sizable stash of arms and explosives was also seized by the Frontier Corps personnel.
Earlier on Saturday, paramilitary forces killed at least four members of a Baloch insurgent group in the port city of Karachi, officials said.
The BLA mainly operates in resource-rich Balochistan, the largest of Pakistan’s four provinces, but its roughly seven million inhabitants have long complained they do not receive a fair share of its gas and mineral wealth.
