First post-blast combing operation starts in Quetta: ISPR
According to ISPR, at lease 500 Frontier Corps and 150 policemen are taking part in the operation to arrest terrorists and militants from the city which was shaken by a deadly blast killing at least 70 people.
The blast took place after a number of lawyers and some journalists had gathered at the hospital following the death of the president of the Balochistan Bar Association in a separate shooting incident.
In Tuesday’s corps commander conference, the COAS directed the commanders and intelligence agencies that they should further intensify the combing and targeted operations with full vigour to eliminate terrorists and sleeper cells.
He also directed commanders to provide all necessary assistance to provincial law-enforcement agencies in their capacity building through training, resourcing and planning to integrate them effectively in counter terrorism operations.
