Rawalpindi (July 16, 2017): Frontier Constabulary (FC) foiled terrorists attack in Zhob after killing four suspected terrorists followed by an exchange of fire on late Saturday night, when they attacked a check post in Zhob, Baluchistan.
According to ISPR, the terrorists fired rockets and used machine guns during the attack on Shoaib Nikka post in the Qamar din Kerez area of Zhob, said the army’s media wing. The FC troops, however, foiled the attack, killing four terrorists.

Recently, police and security forces launched a crackdown in Quetta and adjoining areas, arresting 98 suspects after the target-killing spree that claimed five lives over a 24-hour period.
