Key TTP commander killed in Lakki Marwat IBO

The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Bannu killed on Sunday a key terrorist commander of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in an Intelligence-based operation (IBO) carried out in Lakki Marwat.

The operation was conducted in Tajuri Road near Malang Adda following which the armed terrorists hidden there opened fire on the police.

The key TTP commander Waliullah was gunned down by the CTD in retaliatory firing, while others managed to escape the scene.

The slain terrorist was a resident of Bachkan Ahmedzai District Lakki Marwat. The CTD recovered arms and two hand grenades from his possession.

Wali was a local commander of the banned TTP Tipu Gul group and was the son-in-law of Commander Atiqur Rahman alias Tipu Gul Marwat.

He was wanted in many cases of bomb blasts on CTD Bannu, DI Khan and local police, and attacks on police and security forces.

On June 12, eleven terrorists were killed and their multiple hideouts were also busted during an IBO in Lakki Marwat district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P), the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The IBO was carried out in response to a recent improvised explosive device (IED) explosion in the same district that claimed the lives of seven brave soldiers, including Captain Muhammad Faraz Ilyas and Subedar Major Muhammad Nazir.

“A sanitization operation is being carried out to eliminate any other terrorist in the area,” the media wing of the military said. The ISPR reaffirmed the determination to wipe out the menace of terrorism from the country.
