SOUTH WAZIRISTAN: A roadside bomb hit a militant vehicle in the South Waziristan tribal region on the Afghan border, killing five militants, intelligence officials in the region said.

The militants were operating under Maulvi Nazir, an influential militant leader, whose group is known for launching attacks in Afghanistan, and not in Pakistan.

Correct me if I am wrong but didn't I just read an article with the following title:

ARMY CONCLUDES 'SUCCESSFUL' SOUTH WAZIRISTAN OPERATION.

Does this mean the Pakistan Army has jumped the gun (so to speak!) and hasn't quite yet completed its operation in South Waziristan Agency to flush out terrorists?
