RAWALPINDI: An army major was martyred in action, while three terrorists and their facilitators have been apprehended in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) conducted by security forces in the Shakhas area of Khyber district, as stated by the military’s media affairs wing on Thursday.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) reported that Major Abdullah Shah led the operation based on information about the presence of terrorists in the area.
