At least 15 terrorists were killed and several hideouts destroyed as Pakistan Army jets targeted militants in Tirah Valley of the Khyber Agency on Tuesday.
According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa, the latest airstrikes have targeted the militant hideouts in Tirah Valley and as a result successfully taken out 15 terrorists and destroyed several hideouts.
Reportedly, the attack also left several terrorists wounded.
The military has also targeted terrorists’ hideouts in Rajgal Valley along Pakistan-Afghanistan border and destroyed as many as 9 hideouts there.
Pakistan Army destroyed nine hideouts of terrorists and killed 14 terrorists after an operation was launched on Tuesday along the Pak-Afghan border to limit their cross border movement.
The operation was carried out along the border in Rajgal Valley in Khyber Agency’s high mountain passes, said DG Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Asim Bajwa.
“In today’s air strikes 14 terrorists were killed and 11 were injured.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Pakistan Army confirmed launching of the operation against terrorists to reinforce troop deployment in Rajgal Valley and guard against terrorists along the high mountains and passes in Khyber Agency.
The operation was launched after the COAS said all efforts would be committed to ensuring peace and stability along the Pak-Afghan border.
Earlier this month, Pakistan constructed a gate at the Torkham border, termed by Afghanistan as inappropriate and a violation of previous agreements.
Both sides later declared ceasefire and agreed on the formation of a bilateral mechanism to discuss all issues related to border security.
