15 killed as jets bomb terrorists in Orakzai
PESHAWAR: At least 15 terrorists were killed and several injured when Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jets bombed suspected terrorist hideouts in Upper Orakzai Agency on Thursday.
Official sources said the jets targeted suspected hideouts in the Bermela, Khadizai, Mamozai and Samarbazar areas, and destroyed four compounds in the rugged terrain near the Afghan border.
“Two warplanes were sent to the area early this morning after reports from local intelligence sources that terrorists from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were hiding in the mountainous region,” a senior military officer told AFP. Sources said that death toll might rise, as several terrorists were reportedly trapped under the rubble.
