North Waziristan Air Strikes Kill over 50 Militants

Islamabad, June 17 (QNA) – The Pakistan Air Force aircraft pounded militant hideouts early Tuesday in parts of North Waziristan, killing more than 50 militants, sources said.

The air strikes were conducted in Mir Ali and other areas of the agency as part of Pakistan’s newly launched offensive against the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and other foreign militants in NWA that borders war ravaged Afghanistan, (Geo News) quoted the sources as saying.

Official sources said that as many as eight hideouts were targeted in the latest air strikes and death toll might rise.

The operation was launched a week after militants stored Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport, causing many casualties. (QNA)
