Pakistan: Army says 23 militants killed in air strikes

Pakistani air strikes on Sunday killed 23 militants including foreigners in the country’s restive tribal regions near the Afghan border, the military said, part of a massive ongoing operation against the Taliban.

The strikes took place in areas close to the border with Afghanistan in Khyber and North Waziristan tribal districts.

“(A) huge ammunition dump was also blown up during the strikes in Khyber,” the military said in a statement, without giving the identity of those killed or who they fought for.

Khyber is a known stronghold for militants belonging to the Pakistani Taliban and its Lashkar-e-Islam faction.

The area is remote and off-limits to journalists making it difficult to verify the army’s claims.
