A Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) hideout established in underground tunnels in Kalaya, Aurakzai Agency was also decimated during a raid, the communiqué read. The ISPR said, raids were launched as part of the ongoing country-wide military offensive Radd-ul-Fasaad.

The military launched Radd-ul-Fasaad, the new countrywide anti-terrorist offensive, after a series of deadly bombings across Pakistan killed over 100 people in February 2017.

This is overall 11th military operation launched in the country since 2007 when the country adopted a comprehensive strategy to deal with terrorism. But most of earlier campaigns restricted to the tribal regions, Balochistan and Karachi.

    Interesting that Pakistan quite rightly attacks terrorist groups and gets them under control, but when Syria does the same thing President Trump abuses Syria and send over 59 missiles. Recommend
