At least 10 terrorists were killed in aerial firing by the Pakistani Army in the Bara sub-division of the Khyber tribal agency on Monday morning. Two soldiers were also killed in the clashes that preceded return of the helicopter gunships to Bara area.

According to reports coming from the tribal area, military operations resumed in the agency after terrorists continued to attack settled areas. As part of these frequent attacks, terrorists and security personnel clashed in the Akakhel area, resulting in the helicopter gunships being pressed into action.

Radio Pakistan reported that search operations are being undertaken in the area to flush out the terrorists holed up there. Four terrorist bases are said to have been destroyed in Monday’s offensive.
