Air strikes kill 40 suspected militants in fresh N Waziristan blitz

indexPESHAWAR, Sept 17 (INP): At least 40 terrorists, including unidentified foreign militants were killed and five militant hideouts destroyed in aerial strikes early on Wednesday in Dattakhel tehsil of North Waziristan Agency, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The fighter jets struck suspected terrorist hideouts in Kiza Madakhel, Dattakhel and Ezark areas of the Agency.

The ISPR said that terrorist hideouts and ammunition dumps were destroyed in the strikes targeting Nawe Killi and Zaram Asar villages situated in the north of Dattakhel.

However, this information could not be independently verified as the access of media is restricted in the region.

The army has launched an all-out military operation named Zarb-e-Azb on June 15 against local and foreign militants in North Waziristan. Tuesday saw at least 11 terrorists and three Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers killed when Pakistani security forces thwarted an attack by militants from across the border.

However, military jets Tuesday also struck Khyber Agency killing at least 23 suspected militants.

Three months into the operation, the military says it has cleared more than 80 percent of the territory in North Waziristan including its regional headquarters of Miramshah, its now ruined sub-district Mirali and a communication line spreading over 80 kilometres up to Dattakhel.

According to earlier ISPR press release, the official number of suspected terrorists killed in Operation Zarb-e-Azb has been put at 910 and that of Pakistani soldiers killed during the North Waziristan offensive at 82.
