LANDI KOTAL: Fresh air raids in Khyber Agency’s Tirah valley killed at least twelve suspected terrorists, and destroyed dozens of their hideouts, sources said on Sunday.

Following a tip-off, jet fighters bombed the hideouts in the early hours of the day.

Although the security forces did not release a statement, local sources confirmed the bombing, as well as the terrorists' death toll.

The military has cleansed the erstwhile militant-infested valley in two operations, codenamed Khyber-I and Khyber-II. In August, the army mounted another offensive, Khyber-III, to target terrorists holed up in the area beyond Tirah valley, right on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
