ORAKZAI: Fighter jets on Wednesday targeted insurgent hideouts in the Orakzai tribal region, killing four militants and destroying two hideouts.

The militants and their hideouts were targeted in Upper Orakzai’s Asmat Khana region with the help of jet fighters.

Moreover, security forces also foiled a sabotage bid in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s capital and seized a huge cache of explosives along with arresting two suspects.

In another operation, security forces seized a huge quantity of explosives from a house in the Urmar area on the outskirts of Peshawar. During the operation, two suspects were taken into custody.

Police feigned ignorance over the operation saying it may have been carried out by the security forces.
