Twenty Militants Killed in Aerial Strikes
NORTH WAZIRISTAN: Security forces on Saturday killed 20 suspected militants in aerial strikes near Pak-Afghan Border in North Waziristan Agency, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement informed.
As security forces conducted the strikes, 20 suspected militants were confirmed dead while several hideouts were also destroyed.
The deeply forested areas near the border are a key smuggling route between Pakistan and Afghanistan, and are dotted with Taliban bases, used as launch pads for attacks on Pakistani forces.
Air strikes last month also left 15 suspected militants dead in Shawal Valley after security forces moved in on Taliban strongholds in the area.
Air strikes and search operations across the region have continued in efforts to eliminate terrorism from the country.
