All nine Mianwali base attackers killed: Pakistan Army

ISPR said in a statement that no active assets of the Air Force were damaged in the attack and the operation against the terrorists has been completed.

According to the ISPR spokesperson of the Pakistan Army: 'After the cowardly and failed terrorist attack on the base today (Saturday) morning, the security forces have been successful in eliminating any possible threat in the surrounding area. The operation was done.'

The statement added that three terrorists were killed before they entered the air base and no active PAF assets were damaged in the attack and combing and clearance operations at the base have been completed.

According to ISPR, three inactive aircraft suffered some damage during the attack. "The swift and professional conclusion of the operation is a reminder to the enemies of peace that Pakistan's armed forces remain alert and fully capable of defending the homeland against any threat."

Sarfaraz Bugti, Pakistan's caretaker interior minister, said in a statement that the names of the terrorists who attacked in DI Khan, Pasni and Mianwali must be different, but the enemy behind the scenes is the same.
