The police seized arms and ammunition from the truck, as well as the IED the terrorists were planning to plant.

Security forces also raided the terrorists' hideout at an apartment in a building in 6 October City, killing four other terrorists in a shootout.

Police forces seized arms, ammunition and explosives from the hideout.
