PESHAWAR: At least 13 suspected militants were killed and their hideouts were destroyed Wednesday in air strikes carried out by fighter jets in the Shawal tehsil of North Waziristan.
Sources claimed that the jet strikes destroyed at least six hideouts in the Shawal mountains and the area near Dattakhel.
However, these claims could not be independently verified.
Air strikes were also carried out late on Tuesday.
The media has no access to the tribal region, making it difficult to verify the claims of military as well as militant sources.
The military operation named Zarb-i-Azb was launched by the Pakistan Army on June 15 following a brazen Taliban-claimed attack on Karachi's international airport and failure of peace talks between the government and Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan negotiators.
