Terrorist attack on PAF Mianwali training base ‘thwarted’: ISPR
At least six terrorists attacked Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Mianwali Training Air Base in the early hours of November 4, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The military’s media wing said the attack has been “foiled and thwarted” due to the swift and effective response of security troops, “ensuring the safety and security of personnel and assets”.
During the attack, three terrorists were killed after entering the base while the other three were cornered and isolated due to retaliatory action by troops.
“However, during the attack, some damage to three already grounded aircraft and a fuel bowser also occurred,” said the ISPR. Unverified videos on social media showed a fire burning reportedly at the base.
The military media wing added that a “comprehensive” clearance and combing operation is in the final stages to clear the airbase.
“Pakistan Armed Forces remain committed to eliminating menace of terrorism from the country at all costs,” said ISPR.
