The Pakistani security forces nabbed 20 terrorists during various operations conducted in southwestern Balochistan province on Sunday, the military said.

A statement from the army's media wing Inter-Services Public Relations said that paramilitary frontier corps carried out intelligence-based operations in Buleda, Gish Kaur, Tratha and Pishin areas of the province.

The paramilitary frontier corps also recovered arms and ammunition from the possession of the arrested terrorists, including rockets, sub-machine guns and sniper rifle ammunition, laptops, GPS and other communication equipment, the army statement said.

The operations were part of the ongoing operation "Raddul Fassad" in Balochistan province, a military offensive involving all law-enforcement agencies against the "latent threat of terrorism" across the country, which was launched in February 2017.

Earlier on Tuesday in a similar operation, the paramilitary frontier corps arrested 11 militants during multiple operations conducted in the province and seized a huge cache of arms and ammunition from their possession, said a military statement.
