Miranshah- Pakistani jets killed 17 more militants in the latest raid on militant hideouts in the country's restive northwest, officials said today.
The planes bombarded hideouts in the Dargamandi and Chashma Gaon areas of North Waziristan. "Jet fighters bombarded militant hideouts, killing 17 rebels and destroying their six compounds," a senior security official said. A local intelligence official confirmed the militant casualties in the aerial attack.
Nearly 370 militants and 12 security personnel have been killed in the offensive, dubbed "Zarb-e-Azb" after a sword used in battle by the Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
