As per the press release issued by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), media wing of the Pak-Army, on Sunday, the IBO was conducted on the information of the presence of BLF terrorists in the general area of Central Makran Mountain Range, near Paroom, Balochistan.

The security forces conducted an operation to apprehend them but once the troops started a clearance operation in the area, terrorists tried to escape from their hideout and opened fire on security forces.
