12 hideouts and training camps of terrorist groups have been destroyed in two days of artillery shelling by Pakistani military, Afghan sources confirmed on Saturday.

According to Afghan sources, 10 to 12 hideouts and training camps of the JuA and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan – including that of JuA commander Wali – have been destroyed in the blitz.
“Fifteen to 20 terrorists, among them commander Rehman Baba, have been killed and many more injured,” one Afghan source added. Rehman Baba, a high value target, was responsible for training young terrorists and suicide bombers.
