RAWALPINDI: At least twelve militants have been killed while several others injured in the latest air strikes in Khyber Agency on Saturday.

According to ISPR security forces backed by helicopter gunships pounded militant hideouts in Tirah valley.

Pakistan has been battling militant groups in its semi-autonomous tribal belt since 2004, after its army entered the region to search for Taliban fighters who had fled across the border following the US-led invasion of Afghanistan.
