The spokesperson added that the operations were conducted in Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Sialkot, and Hafizabad. Among the nine arrested, two were major financiers of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

During the operation, explosives, IED devices, mobile phones, cash were recovered from the arrested terrorists identified as Abdul Rahman, Abdul Wahid, Azeem, Zaman, Sufiyan, Siddique and Sajjid Jutt.
