During the operation, the security forces also seized incriminating material, along with a pistol, two magazines, five rounds, and two grenades from the encounter site. These recoveries further underline the extent of the terrorist network’s plans and intentions, highlighting the need for continued vigilance and proactive measures by the security forces.
