RAWALPINDI -- Pakistani forces conducting Operation Khyber-IV seized two militant strongholds in Khyber Agency alongside the Afghan border, said Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement Sunday (July 23).
The two strongholds are both situated in Rajgal Valley. The troops also secured two passes connecting Pakistan and Afghanistan, added ISPR.
Terrorists are fleeing the area as ground and air forces blast their hideouts, said Frontier Corps Maj. Gen. Shaheen, commander of Operation Khyber-IV, according to ISPR.
How effective will the future fence along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border be in controlling the movement of militants?
