ISPR: Two Army officers martyred in Kohlu operation

F.P. Report

RAWALPINDI: Two Army officers were martyred during an operation against terrorists in Balochistan’s Kohlu area on Friday.

According to a statement issued by the ISPR, a sanitisation operation, based on credible intelligence information, was launched on 10 February (Friday) in Kohlu area of Balochistan to deny terrorists any liberty to operate.

During the ensuing sanitisation of the area, an IED exploded close to the raiding party consisting of Army personnel.

Resultantly, two officers, Major Jawad and Captain Sagheer, embraced Shahadat (martyrdom) and laid their lives in defence of the motherland against an externally perpetrated threat.

The sanitization operation continued in the area to apprehend perpetrators and enemies of the peace.

According to ISPR statement, such cowardly acts by inimical elements cannot sabotage the hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan. Security Forces are determined to neutralise their nefarious designs even at the cost of blood and lives, the ISPR added.
