Pakistani air force kills dozens of militants in airstrikes near Afghan border

Pakistani air force kills dozens of militants in airstrikes near Afghan borderThe attacks targeted militant hideouts in the Wucha Bibi area of North Waziristan, the Pakistani army said in a statement.

This is reported by Associated Press.

The Pakistani military has been battling Taliban militants in North Waziristan since mid-2014. That campaign has been stepped up after a series of suicide bombings last week killed more than 100 people--including 88 worshippers at a Sufi shrine. A combination of the Pakistani Taliban, one of its breakaway factions Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, an al-Qaida linked sectarian outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, and the Islamic State group claimed the brazen attacks.

The Taliban and their affiliated Islamic militant groups have killed tens of thousands of people in a bid to overthrow the Pakistani government and install their own harsh interpretation of Islamic law.
