PESHAWAR: Twenty-one militants were killed and 14 others were injured as security forces attacked insurgent hideouts in the remote Tirah Valley in the Khyber tribal region’s Jamrud tehsil on Friday, official sources claimed.

“The security forces had targeted militant positions in Koki Khel area of Tirah valley and destroyed five insurgent hideouts as well,” sources in the Frontier Corps told Dawn.com

The militants were affiliated with the outlawed extremist group Lashkar-i-Islam led by Mangal Bagh, the officials said.

However, the reports could not be verified from independent sources because the Tirah Valley is inaccessible to media personnel. Therefore, the information originating mostly from the militants and the security forces was utilised in this report.
