On Saturday morning, six militants assaulted an Air Force training center in the central Pakistani city of Mianwali, Punjab. According to Reuters, three militants were killed before entering the facility, and the other three were surrounded. The newest terror strike destroyed three airplanes and a fueling truck.
Tehreek-e Jihad (TTP), a Pakistan-based terror group, has purportedly claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the Pakistani military. According to the military, an operation is underway to evacuate the area.
Terrorists staged two separate strikes on security forces in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) earlier this week.
An Intelligence-Based Operation (IBO) was carried out in the Tirah region of Khyber District, culminating in a violent exchange of fire.
At the time, one terrorist was killed and two others were injured before being caught by security authorities.
In another incident, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated in the Sarwekai region of the South Waziristan District, killing two troops, Sepoy Banaras Khan.
