40 terrorists killed, 43 hideouts destroyed in Khyber since last week: ISPR

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan forces have killed 40 terrorists and destroyed 43 hideouts through aerial strikes and ground offensives since the start of Operation Khyber 3, which began last week in the Rajgal valley of Tirah, a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations said on Monday.

The statement adds that 21 terrorists were also injured in the said time frame.

“Security forces have occupied passes and are now consolidating their positions up in high mountains in Rajgal. During search in Damo Drub huge cache of arms and ammo including IEDs were recovered today.”

Security forces upped the ante of their offensives in the war against militancy in the aftermath of the brutal suicide bombing at the Quetta Civil Hospital that targeted protesting lawyers.

Combing operations against banned organisations suspected of involvement in terrorism were immediately launched in different areas of Quetta and other ares adjoining the Pakistan- Afghanistan border.

Pakistan has been fighting a deadly war against terrorism for over a decade now, with its forces engaged in an armed offensive – Operation Zarb-i-Azb – against militants in the country’s restive northwest border region since June 2014.
