ISLAMABAD, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan's security forces have foiled a terror plot in Zhob district of southwestern Balochistan province by seizing a huge cache of arms during a search operation, security sources said Thursday.

The security forces in the raid seized a bag carrying 10 to 12 kg of material such as detonators, ball bearings, and wires that are used to make improvised explosive devices, the sources added.

The security forces also seized eight bombs weighing about six to eight kg during the raid on a hideout of the banned outfit Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, and they believed that the militants were planning to carry out terrorist activities in the province, according to the sources.

Intelligence-based operations have intensified in Pakistan after terrorist activities in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces killed at least 14 soldiers last week.
