Fifteen militants were killed on Saturday in a clash with security forces in Khyber Agency, the military’s public relations wing said.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), approximately 30-35 militants attacked a security forces check post in Khyber Agency’s Tirah Valley, but attack was foiled through “effective retaliation”.
Three security personnel sustained injuries in the clash.
Security forces seized 10 bodies of the militants, along with arms and ammunition, the ISPR said. However, this information could not be independently verified as journalists have limited access to the restive agency.
