8 militants killed in Orakzai

16 February, 2013

PESHAWAR: At least eight militants were killed on Friday in an operation carried out by security forces in the Orakzai tribal region.

According to a private TV channel the action was carried out in Upper Orakzai's Mamozai area. Jet fighters were also used in the operation in which two militant hideouts were destroyed.

Security officials have claimed in the past that up to 92 percent of Orakzai has been cleared of insurgents in the ongoing military offensive in the restive tribal region.

Orakzai is one of Pakistan's seven semi-autonomous tribal regions in the northwest, where Pakistani Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants are said to have carved out strongholds.

End.
