Peshawar:¬†At least 13 suspected terrorists were killed on July 8 after jet fighters attacked hideouts in Pakistan’s tribal region of North Waziristan. The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that the air strikes were carried out in the Degan area, destroying seven hideouts.

The Pakistan army launched a comprehensive operation named Zarb-e-Azb against foreign and local terrorists hiding in sanctuaries in the North Waziristan tribal region a week after the terrorist attack on the country’s busiest airport in Karachi June 8.

So far more than 400 suspected terrorists, mostly foreigners, have been killed during the operation while at least 19 improvised explosive device (IED)-making factories have also been unearthed by security forces in parts of Miramshah.
