Rawalpindi [Pakistan], Feb. 20(ANI): The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) carried out air strikes in the border area of North Waziristan Agency on terrorist positions, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The statement said the terrorists tried to regroup in the Wucha Bibi area of the tribal agency and were targeted by the PAF. A terrorist hideout was destroyed, killing the terrorists occupying it, added the military's media wing. The airstrikes comes following a week of terror attacks across the country, with the last one killing at least 88 people when a suicide bomber blew himself at the shrine of Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. The ISPR late last week claimed to have killed more than 100 suspected militants in intelligence-based operations carried out by security forces across the country, including Punjab.(ANI)
