Islamabad: At least five labourers were gunned down in the Shin Warsak neighbourhood of South Waziristan in Pakistan by unknown assailants, ARY News reported on Friday.

Five labourers who were building a police post nearby were sleeping at their camp when some unknown people opened fire, resulting in their deaths.

Eight terrorists were slain in a gunfight with security personnel in the South Waziristan District's Sararogha neighbourhood last month, according to ARY News.

According to ISPR, the security forces conducted an intelligence-based operation in the area based on the reported presence of terrorists.

The law and order of Pakistan continue to remain in a deteriorated state as the terrorists continue to actively participate in a number of terrorist attacks against both security personnel and civilians.

Among the terrorists who were killed, they were also found to have weapons, ammunition, and explosives.
