Precision military air strikes on Wednesday shot down at least 32 activists, including key commanders in a restive Pakistani tribal area near the Afghan border, officials alleged.
“Confirmed militant hideouts were targeted early morning today in North Waziristan through precise aerial strikes,” a senior security.
He added, “there are reports of 32 terrorists killed in work stoppages, letting in some important commanders”.
The official, however, did not let out names of the commanders killed in the strikes.
” At that place were confirmed reports that terrorists involved in recent attacks, letting in a fire at an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in Peshawar, bomb attacks in Mohmand and Bajaur tribal regions… and attacks on security forces convoys in NWA (North Waziristan), were hiding in these hideouts”, the official added.
