TTP Commanders News
TANK: Security forces have killed four Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) commanders during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Tank, a tribal area bordering Tank district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), security forces conducted an IBO in Ping area of FR Tank against Asmatullah Shaheen group of the TTP.
“Four high profile terrorists- Commander Zaman alias Toofan, Umar, commander Wasiullah and commander Zulamdin alias Zulmat- were killed,” the ISPR statement said. It also said that weapons and ammunition were also recovered.
The group was involved in target killings, extortion and kidnapping for ransom in DI Khan, Tank and surrounding areas, the ISPR added.
Shaheen was an important member of TTP Shura, and was killed by another TTP faction due to internal rift in 2014.
Pakistan Army has stepped up with rapid action against militants in the tribal belt after series of attacks and blasts that claimed over 100 lives across the country last week.
