MIRAMSHAH: Unidentified militants launched three rocket attacks at a camp of security forces in Miramshah, the administrative headquarters of North Waziristan, in the early hours of Friday morning, but no casualties were reported in the incident.
According to military sources, the rocket attacks were carried out at 1 am in the morning.
Militants launched three rocket attacks at the security forces' camp in Miramshah; however, no loss of life or damage was reported.
North Waziristan is one of the seven regions in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) governed by tribal laws. An extremist insurgency led by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) plagues the region and the area is known to be infested with militants, including those from Al Qaeda and other armed extremist organisations.
The region also comes under attacks from US drones frequently which target militant hideouts in the area.
The region is chiefly off-limits to reporters because of security worries and government restrictions due to which reliable casualty figures are difficult to acquire from there.
