QUETTA- Security forces raided a truck and recovered a large quantity of weapons, ammunition and explosives in Balochistan's Gulistan area near the Pak-Afghan border region today.
Security forces claimed to have recovered 70 sacks of explosive materials, 45 prepared bombs, 200 detonators, 100 AK-47 rifles, nine kalakovs, three G-3 rifles and 135 handguns. Bomb making and other equipment recovered included one hundred bundles of
prima cord, 50 remote control detonators, sophisticated binoculars, sniper scopes and at least 2,000 rounds of ammunition.
Security sources said the weapons were being smuggled into Balochistan from Afghanistan to be used in terror activities across the country, especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti alleged that neighbouring countries were trying to carry out terror activities to weaken Pakistan.
