At least nine terrorists were killed in military air strikes close to the Pak-Afghan border, the ISPR said on Tuesday.

According to the military's media wing, terrorist hideouts were also destroyed in air strikes near Barmand area of North Waziristan on late Monday.

Earlier in February, strikes were carried out in the Maizer area of the Datta Khail region of North Waziristan - area considered as the last bastion of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan militants.

Last month, Pakistan Army announced it had begun the “last phase” of operation Zarb-e-Azb targeting militants in the restive northwest region.

The operation began in June 2014, after an attack on Karachi airport finally sank faltering peace talks earlier that year.
