Operation Khyber-II: Airstrikes kill 20 militants
PESHAWAR (Web Desk) - At least 20 terrorists have been killed in fresh air strikes by PAF fighter jets during the ongoing military operation – Khyber-II -, ISPR confirmed on Friday.

According to a spokesman of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), 20 terrorists including key commanders were killed in the air strikes in Khyber Agency.

18 other militants are reportedly injured in the airstrikes.

The Operation Khyber Two is ongoing with full swing and Pakistan Army is advancing successfully.

Pakistan has been battling militants in its semi-autonomous tribal belt since 2004, after its army entered the region to search for Al Qaeda fighters who had fled across the border following the US-led invasion of Afghanistan.
