Pakistan Army claimed on Friday that over 100 suspected terrorists have been killed in retaliation for an ISIS suicide bombing at a crowded Shrine in Sindh Province.
ISPR, the media wing of the army said: “ a sizeable number of suspects have also been arrested since last night when an Islamic state bomber blew himself up at the popular shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan in the southern Province.”
The blast came out to be the deadliest in years in Pakistan.
Pakistan Army has launched combing operations across the country, including Punjab province. Military Spokesperson major General Asif Ghafoor said, “Intelligence agencies are making progress to unearth networks behind recent (terrorist) incidents”.
Further details have not been disclosed.
Pakistan claimed the bombing was planned in militant sanctuaries across the border in Afghanistan, threatening renewed hostilities between Kabul and Islamabad.
The army stated, “No cross-border or unauthorised entry will be allowed into Pakistan from Afghanistan”.
