PESHAWAR: At least 12 militants were killed as a result of aerial bombing and 10 in clashes with security forces in Orakzai Agency, officials claimed on Saturday.
Officials said jets had targeted militant hideouts in the Jabba, Adokhel, Sam’ma and Mamozai areas. “At least 12 militants were killed in the bombing,” said an official.
“Three others were also injured according to our reports,” he added, and also confirmed that three hideouts had also been destroyed.
Security forces also clashed with militants in the Khadezai area. “A militant commander was among ten militants killed and eight were injured,” said the official.
None of the claims could be independently verified as the area is closed for journalists.

@markH ----- I don't know about you but I have never heard of any child born with a gun. Although rumours are that the CIA, RAW and Mossad might be working on some new techniques to create a super warrior class, fully funded by Holly wood of course.

This young soldier embraced shahadat today and i see no news of him here. ET doesn't bother
I was told by my relatives that US drone killed them.
@MyHeartSpeaks: what else do u wanna see??
People killed here are terrorists cos ISPR says so. People killed by Drones are terrorists cos ISPR says so.
Suspected militants. Apparently everyone in FATA has guns, even the children when they're born.
This is the only way to answer these individuals who are destroying our country and bringing a bad name to our religion.....long live Pak army jawans we are proud of you.
Wishing the Pak security forces many more successes in their operations against the killers of innocent people of Pakistan.
Something to ponder: Last line of the news says: None of the claims could be independently verified as the area is closed for journalists. We have to believe what the ISPR says. There is no second way to cross-check. Who knows what really happening there????
well done soldiers. wipe out TTP cult
