PAF strikes: Six militants killed in Bara tehsil

PAF strikes: Six militants killed in Bara tehsil

At least six militants belonging to Lashkar-e-Islam were killed and five others were injured when two Pakistan Air Force jet fighters pounded militant hideouts in Kharmatang and Akka Khel area of Bara tehsil of Khyber Agency on Sunday, an official of the security forces told The Express Tribune.

He added that the two hideouts were razed to the ground in the attack by the PAF jets.

After the bombing, in the early hours of morning militants shifted the injured along with the bodies to undisclosed location for treatment and burial.

“These areas are known as strongholds of the militants from where they stage deadly attacks in Kohat and Peshawar,” an official in Kohat told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Pakistan has seen a spate of militant attacks since Sharif took office last month, putting pressure on his team to act more aggressively to curb insurgency and to appear decisive in its efforts to combat militants on its soil.
