QUETTA: Security forces on Thursday claimed to have foiled a major terror bid by seizing explosive material during a raid in Balochistan's Zhob district.

According to details, the raid was conducted in the Qamaruddin Karez area of the district. The seized explosives included eight bombs weighing six to eight kilogrammes, a bag full of material used to make improvised explosive devices (IEDs), remote control, detonators, ball bearings, and wires. According to Security sources, proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) desired to use the explosives in terror activities in Quetta and Zhob.

All the explosive material is believed to have been brought into the country from Afghanistan.
