The military and the interior ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Security forces surrounded the military district in which the center is located in the northwestern city of Bannu, where about 20 fighters of the Pakistani Taliban, known as the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), were hiding.

“All options failed and the terrorists refused to free innocent people, so we decided to use force,” a senior security official told Reuters.

He said minimum force would be used to ensure the safe release of the hostages.

According to another security official’s update, the Army’s elite commando unit, the Special Service Group (SSG), was called in to carry out the operation.
