Pakistan army kills seven militants near Afghan border

Islamabad, Oct 2 (PTI) Pakistani security forces have killed seven terrorists in an exchange of fire with them in Pakistan's restive tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

The terrorists from across the Afghan border engaged in a 'fire raid' at the check-post in North Waziristan on Monday, prompting army officials to retaliate, the military said in a statement on Tuesday.

"During the exchange of fire seven terrorists were killed while three others injured," it said.

Attacks on security forces and targeted killings have witnessed a surge in the volatile North Waziristan since the army launched the Zarb-i-Azb military operation against terrorists in June 2014, which also resulted in the displacement of over one million civilians. PTI PMS PMS
