TTP commander among 30 killed in NWA

22 October, 2014

MIRANSHAH: At least 30 suspected terrorists have been killed as jet fighters targeted their hideouts in North Waziristan Agency (NWA).

Daud Matta, a key Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) commander, was also killed in the strike in Datta Khel area, according to sources.

The official sources also said that the jets targeted at least four terrorist hideouts, which were destroyed.

Operation Zarb-e-Azb was launched by the Pakistan Army on June 15 following a brazen militant attack on Karachi's international airport and failure of peace talks between the government and TTP.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations, the killed terrorists included foreigners.
