Pakistani Army Kills 14 Militants

Pakistan’s Army said it killed 14 suspected Taliban members in the North Waziristan tribal area on Tuesday.
“Fourteen fighters, including some of their important commanders, were killed in aerial strikes,” said a statement issued by the army’s media wing, Inter Services Public Relations. “They were seen dragging some of the dead bodies while fleeing from the area.”
The airstrikes came after renewed Taliban attacks killed 10 soldiers in a week, World Bulletin reported.
North Waziristan is part of the northwestern tribal belt that borders Afghanistan and where the Taliban and other armed groups have a strong presence.
The army launched a full military operation in June 2014 to eliminate the main coalition of Pakistani Taliban groups known as Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan.
The army has reportedly killed more than 2,800 suspected fighters in aerial and ground strikes, while more than 350 soldiers have also died in landmine blasts and ambushes.
The military operation has also displaced more than a million tribes people from North Waziristan.
