Parachinar: A government administrator
says Pakistani fighter jets have bombed suspected militant
hideouts in a northwestern region near the Afghan border,
killing at least 10 alleged insurgents.
Javed Khan says the airstrikes today hit two areas of
the Kurram tribal region based on intelligence reports about
the presence of militants.
Pakistan`s army has waged multiple offensives in
various parts of Pakistan`s lawless tribal belt in order to
force out al Qaeda and Pakistani Taliban fighters.
The US also launches missile strikes against suspected
militants hiding along the border. Information from the tribal
regions is difficult to verify independently, however, because
access is restricted.
