According to India Today, eleven Pakistan Army troops were murdered in a severe terror strike on security forces in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. According to Pakistani news channel Geo TV, three terrorists were killed in the heavy exchange of fire, which cited the Inter-Services Public Relations.

According to the ISPR, the operation was carried out after security officers received information regarding the presence of terrorists in the area.

On June 1, 2021, an unidentified terrorist attacked a security checkpoint in Pakistan's restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, killing a defense official and a civilian, The New Indian Express reported.

The report said that a total of 146 terrorist attacks took place across Pakistan in 2020, including three suicide bombs
