    PESHAWAR: Pakistan security forces targeted militant hideouts in the Tirah valley of Khyber Agency with gunship helicopters on Friday, killing eight militants and injuring 11, DawnNews reported.

    According to government sources three militant hideouts were wiped out during the shelling.

    Sources said that the action was taken after conflict between two religious groups had escalated in the region, which had resulted in the death of at least 30 people.

    The gunship helicopters targeted different militant hideouts in the Tirah Valley.

    April 8, 2011. Friday.


    KHAR: Pakistani security forces backed by helicopter gunships and jets killed 54 alleged militants in a northwest tribal region near the Afghan border where the military has repeatedly tried to flush out the Taliban, a government official said Friday. Three troops also died in the clashes.

    The battle in the Mohmand tribal region on Thursday underscored the difficulty Pakistan has had in keeping areas clear of militants after initial operations, an area the United States has pointed to as a weakness in its counter-insurgency efforts.

    Pakistani troops were doing routine patrolling in the Paizai area of Mohmand when they came under attack, said Maqsood Hasan, a deputy administrator in the region. The troops returned fire and killed 10 insurgents, but also called for backup in the air, Hasan said.

    The army sent helicopters and jets to target militant positions, killing 44 more insurgents and wounding several others, Hasan said. He noted that two or three civilians died when a mortar shell hit a home in the region, but he would not speculate which side fired the shell.

    It is nearly impossible to independently verify the information. Pakistan’s military rarely gives details about how it distinguishes militants from civilians, and access to the country’s tribal areas, where al Qaeda and the Taliban have long had hideouts, is severely restricted.

    April 28, 2011. Thursday.

    At least 33 militants were killed Thursday by security forces and pro-government militia in the tribal areas of northwest Pakistan, media reports said.

    Six militants were killed in a clash with pro-government tribes in the Kurram agency, one of the seven tribal regions bordering Afghanistan, Xinhua reported citing local media.

    After the clash, security forces launched an offensive on the militants in Kurram agency and neighbouring Orakzai agency.

    Helicopters bombarded militant hideouts that led to the death of at least 27 people.

    Security forces have intensified operation in the tribal areas in the last two months, officials said.

    May 08, 2011. Sunday.


    LADDAH, May 8: Two Frontier Corps personnel were killed in a blast in South Waziristan`s Asman Manza area on Sunday morning.

    Sources said that the FC personnel were going from Kaniguram to Laddah when they were hit by an explosive device. The deceased were identified as Shan and Mashan.

    A spokesman of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan said that the Taliban would avenge the killing of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden by US forces.

    Meanwhile, intelligence sources in Dera Ismail Khan and Wana, headquarters of South Waziristan, said that a member of the 13-man committee of the Hakeemullah Mehsud group was killed in an attack by the rival Qari Zainuddin group.

    They said that the deceased, Mufti Noor Wali, was an important commander of the Hakeemullah group.

    According to unconfirmed reports, a member of the Qari group was also killed in the clash. He was identified as Jalil.

    But Shakirullah, a spokesman of the Fidayan-i-Islam group, said the news of Noor Wali`s killing was being spread to demoralise the Taliban. He said that Mufti Noor Wali was alive and in South Waziristan.In another development, tribesmen said that two missiles fired from South Waziristan hit the Machadad Kot camp of Afghan and Nato forces across the border. They said the camp caught fire but there was no report about casualties.

    SHABQADAR: The Tehrik-e-Taliban on Friday claimed their first major strike in revenge for Osama bin Laden’s death as more than 80 people were killed and at least 115 were wounded in a suicide and bomb attack on FC personnel.

    “This was the first revenge for Osama’s martyrdom. Wait for bigger attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan,” spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location.

    It was the deadliest attack in the nuclear-armed country this year and came with Pakistan’s military and civilian leadership plunged into crisis over the killing of the al Qaeda chief by US commandos on May 2.

    The explosions detonated in the Shabqadar Tehsil of Charsadda, as newly trained FC cadets were getting into buses and coaches for a 10-day leave after a training course, and they were wearing civilian clothes, police said.

    Shabqadar is about 30 kilometres north of Peshawar, the main city in the northwest region where militants linked to the Taliban and al Qaeda have repeatedly attacked government forces.

    Ahmad Ali, a wounded paramilitary policeman, recalled the horror when the explosions turned a festive Friday morning into a bloodbath.

    “I was sitting in a van waiting for my colleagues. We were in plain clothes and we were happy we were going to see our families,” he told AFP by telephone from Shabqadar hospital.

    “I heard someone shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ and then I heard a huge blast. I was hit by something in my back shoulder. In the meantime I heard another blast and I jumped out of the van. I felt that I was injured and bleeding.”

    “The suicide bomber came on a motorcycle and blew himself up among the FC personnel. The bomb disposal squad told me the second bomb was planted,” said the police chief of the Charsadda district, Nisar Khan Marwat.

    “Most of those killed are FC cadets. Five dead bodies of civilians were taken to the Shabqadar hospital,” he added.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Pakistani Taliban last week threatened to attack security forces to avenge bin Laden’s killing in a US helicopter raid in Abbottabad.

    There has been little public protest in support of bin Laden in a country where more people have been killed in bomb attacks in the past four years than the nearly 3,000 who died in al Qaeda’s September 11, 2001 attacks.

    But under growing domestic pressure to punish Washington for the bin Laden raid, Pakistan’s civilian government said Thursday it would review counter-terrorism cooperation with the United States.

    It was unclear if the move was intended as a threat, but it showed the extent of the task facing US Senator John Kerry as he prepares to embark on a mission to shore up badly strained ties with Washington’s fractious ally.

    Washington did not inform Islamabad that an elite team of Navy SEALs had helicoptered into the garrison town of Abbottabad until the commandos had cleared Pakistani airspace, carrying with them bin Laden’s corpse.

    The covert night-time raid has plunged Pakistani politics into turmoil with both President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani facing calls to resign.

    (Reuters) - Pakistani security forces shot dead five suspected al Qaeda-linked militants who had tried to carry out a suicide bombing in southwestern city of Quetta on Tuesday, police and paramilitary officials said.

    The would-be bombers included three women and were believed to be foreigners, police said. They were killed in an gunfight near a paramilitary checkpost in Quetta, a city is believed to be a base for the Afghan Taliban leadership.

    "From the appearance of the attackers, it looks they were either Uzbek or Chechens," a senior security official told reporters at the site of incident. "They had hand grenades and bombs strapped to their bodies."

    If the attack had been carried out, it would have been the second targeting Pakistan's military since al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed in a U.S. raid earlier this month.

    Pakistan's Taliban, which is close to al Qaeda, has vowed to avenge bin Laden's death and last week, its suicide bombers killed 80 people at a paramilitary academy in the northwestern town of Charsadda.

    Suicide bombings carried out by women are rare in Pakistan, a strategic U.S. ally facing al Qaeda-backed Taliban insurgents.

    A police official said at least one of the attackers blew himself up before being shot. No security forces were killed, the officials said.

    Pakistan's southwestern tribal area along the Afghan border has been described as a global hub for militants, including Arabs and Chechens.

    Pakistan's commitment to fighting militancy has come under intense scrutiny after it was discovered that bin Laden appeared to have spent years living in there before he was killed by U.S. special forces in a garrison town not far from the capital Islamabad on May 2

    21 May 2011. Saturday.


    PESHAWAR: Eight suspected militants were killed on Saturday when army gunship helicopters attacked their hideouts in Pakistan’s northwestern Orakzai tribal region.

    There was no independent confirmation of the attacks as the region is remote and out of bounds for journalists.

    Orakzai is one of the most lawless areas in Pakistan’s northwest tribal region, which is made up of seven districts near the Afghan border.

    Pakistan launched a major operation in Orakzai in March last year after militants fled a sweeping offensive in the nearby tribal district of South Waziristan.

    Late last year military officials said lower Orakzai had been cleared, but the militant threat persisted in some pockets of the upper part of the area.

    Around 4,000 people have been killed in militant attacks in Pakistan since July 2007
