Jets pound Tirah hideouts, kill three terrorists
The fighter jets pounded hideouts of militants and killed three terrorists and injured five of them.
Sources told that three hideouts of militants were also destroyed in the air offensive.
The military has mounted a series of air strikes and ground assaults in Tirah in recent weeks that it says have captured key passes in a remote region that has never before come under full government control.
The operation in Tirah, part of Khyber tribal area, aims to build on the army’s offensive against strongholds of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and other militant groups in nearby North Waziristan that began in June last year.
