Eleven militants killed in Khyber Agency airstrikes: ISPRPakistan
PESHAWAR: At least 11 militants were killed as a result of a joint aerial and ground operation in different parts of Khyber Agency, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.
A statement issued by the ISPR said eight militant hideouts were also destroyed during the operation, which was conducted in Babar Kachkol, Toor Sapar and adjoining areas of Khyber Agency.
This claim, however, could not be independently verified as journalists do not have access to most parts of the restive agency.
Khyber and North Waziristan are among Pakistan’s seven semi-autonomous tribal districts near the Afghan border, rife with homegrown insurgents and foreign militants.
