Security forces killed 8 militants and destroyed 3 hideouts early on Thursday in the Mamozai area of Upper Orakzai, sources said.
Security forces claimed to have killed 120 militants in this area during the past week alone. They also maintained to have regained control of Akhund Kot, Chapar and Dapar Killay areas.
An operation was launched in Orakzai Agency in March last year and in Kurram this summer. Security forces also launched a massive crackdown against militants in Upper Orakzai Agency some two weeks ago to clear the remaining parts of the agency from Tehreek-i-Taliban (TTP) militants.
During the last few days, security forces have increased their advances in both Orakzai and Kurram agencies.
