HANGU:


At least 14 militants were killed and three hideouts destroyed in air raids in Orakzai Agency on Sunday.


According to security sources, two fighter jets bombed militant hideouts in the Kago Qamar and Zakhtan areas of Orakzai.

“These bases were being used by militants from the Orakzai chapter of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP),” said a security official.

“Most of the areas in Orakzai Agency have been cleared of militants in the ongoing military operation,” he added.

Zakhtan and Kago Qamar areas of Orakzai share a border with Khyber Agency, from where TTP insurgents have been constantly infiltrating into other areas, after having set up their bases.
