The airstrikes were carried out in Datta Khel on information regarding presence of militants.
Sources told that those killed in the airstrikes include key Taliban commander.
A series of fresh strikes after the Peshawar attack, which wrought devastation at an army-run school, prompted the military to step up its campaign against terrorists.
In June the army began an offensive against militant hideouts in the North Waziristan tribal agency after a bloody raid on Karachi Airport ended faltering peace talks between the government and the Taliban.
North Waziristan is a major base for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan as well as the Haqqani network which targets US and NATO forces across the border.
