PESHAWAR: (APS)At least 30 suspected militants have been killed as jet fighters targeted militant hideouts in North Waziristan Agency.
Daud Matta, a key Taliban commander, was also killed in the strike which took place in North Waziristan’s Datta Khel area, according to sources.
The official sources also said that the jets targeted at least four militant hideouts, which were destroyed.
The media has no access to the agency, making it difficult to verify the information from independent sources. The ISPR is yet to issue details of the operation.
Military operation Zarb-i-Azb was launched by the Pakistan Army on June15 following a brazen militant attack on Karachi’s international airport and failure of peace talks between the government and Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan negotiators.
