23 militants killed in Pakistan airstrikes near Afghan border
KABUL (Pajhwok): At least 23 militants were killed on Friday and another more than 10 wounded in airstrikes in North Waziristan and Khyber tribal regions of Pakistan near the Afghan border, the military said.
In a statement the Pakistani army said the strikes in Shawal area of North Waziristan and in Khyber tribal district destroyed six terrorists' hideouts.
The conflict zone is remote and off-limits to journalists, making it difficult to verify the army's claims, including the number and identity of those killed.
