Millitants kill 2 security personnel in North Waziristan
PESHAWAR: Two security personnel were killed and one injured Friday in North Waziristan’s Ghulam Khan area when militants opened fire at a security forces’ vehicle.
According to security sources, militants targeted a security forces’ vehicle which was patrolling the area as per routine. Two security men were killed whereas one sustained injuries.
The casualties were shifted to Miramshah hospital after the incident.
The semi-autonomous tribal areas on the Afghan border have for years been a hideout for militants of all stripes, including Al Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban as well as foreign fighters such as Uzbeks and Uighurs.
Pakistan began a long-awaited push to clear insurgent bases from North Waziristan last June after a bloody Taliban attack on Karachi airport finally sank faltering peace talks.
