PAF air strikes destroy terrorists hideouts on Af-Pak border
PESHAWAR: Pakistan Air Force strike terrorist hideouts in the North Waziristan area along the Pakistan - Afghanistan border.
Pakistani airstrikes killed dozens of alleged militants on Monday in a tribal region along the Afghan border, the military said.
Pakistan had vowed to fight back after a series of suicide bombings last week killed more than 100 people, including 88 worshippers gathered at a famed Sufi shrine. The attacks were claimed by various militant groups, which have long operated in the porous border region.
The warplanes targeted militant hideouts in the Wucha Bibi area of North Waziristan, the army said in a statement. The information could not be independently confirmed, as media access to the region is heavily restricted.
Pakistan carried out a blistering artillery assault on suspected terrorist camps in Afghanistan on Friday and Saturday after giving the Afghan government a list of 76 alleged terrorists it said where sheltering there.
