Operation Zarb-e-Azb

Pakistan Army launched operation Zarb-e-Azb in July 2014 in the North Waziristan agency after a bloody raid on Karachi Airport ended faltering peace talks between the government and militants.

North Waziristan is a major base for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which began its campaign against the state in 2007 and also provides shelter to a number of foreign militant groups.

According to the stats revealed by Pakistan Army more than a thousand militants have been killed and 86 soldiers are martyred since the start of the military offensive.
