Security forces kill nine terrorists in Hangu

HANGU: Nine militants were killed when Pakistan armed forces’ gunship helicopters pounded militant hideouts in Hangu on Saturday. According to sources, shelling by security forces’ gunship helicopters destroyed militants’ compounds and killed nine militants in various areas of Tehsil Tal. Four gunship helicopters took part in the operation, sources added. It may be mentioned that Pakistani jets bombed militants’ hideouts in a northwestern tribal district early on Thursday, killing at least 35 militants, including local and foreign terrorists. The aircraft bombarded suspected militant hideouts in Mir Ali area of North Waziristan as part of surgical strikes which authorities said should not be taken as a military operation. Meanwhile, the political administration on Saturday enforced a curfew from Miranshah to Datta Khel area of North Waziristan Agency (NWA) due to the deteriorating law and order situation in the region.
