    Multiple suspected militants killed in Burraq strike, says ISPR

    PESHAWAR: Multiple suspected militants were killed by a drone strike carried out by the indigenously produced 'Burraq' drone on Thursday, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

    The drone strike was carried out in the region of South Waziristan.

    “A drone strike by a 'Burraq' drone was carried out in South Waziristan and targeted terrorists’ hideouts,” stated ISPR.

    It is pertinent to mention that this is the second confirmed drone strike by a Pakistani manufactured 'Burraq' drone.

    The armed drone was used for the first time since its development in November 2013.

    Pakistan already has several types of unarmed surveillance drones in operation, but ‘Burraq’ and ‘Shahpar’ were the first surveillance drones to be developed locally.

    ‘Burraq’ was developed alongside ‘Shahpar’ in cooperation with the National Engineering and Scientific Commission (NESCOM), which is a civilian controlled Pakistani scientific research organisation.

    Pakistan Army had tested ‘Burraq’ armed with laser-guided ‘Barq’ missile for the first time on March 14, 2015. Both Burraq drone and Barq missile, according to the army, have been indigenously developed.

    The trials were witnessed by Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif who said it was a “great national achievement and momentous occasion”.

    Pakistan had long aspired to have armed drones for bolstering its counter-terrorism capacity, but was only offered surveillance drones.

    The efforts to indigenously develop drone capability were first reported in 2009.

    Drone kills six suspected militants near Pak-Afghan border

    PESHAWAR: At least six suspected militants were killed Friday in a US drone strike in the Nazyan district near Pak-Afghan border in Khyber Agency.

    Security sources said that the drone targeted a militant compound in the Nazyan district of Afghanistan's Nangarhar province, on the zero line bordering Khyber Agency. The drone strike killed killed six suspected militants while the compound was completely destroyed.

    The sources added that all the six 'militants' belonged to the self-styled Islamic State (IS) group in Afghanistan.

    According to security officials, militants based in the Nazyan district had planned the devastating attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, which left over 140 children and teachers dead and scores injured.

    — This is a developing story and will be updated as details come in.

    21 suspected terrorists killed in Tirah air strikes

    PESHAWAR: At least 21 suspected terrorists were killed Friday in military air strikes in Khyber Agency's Tirah Valley, said security sources.

    Pakistan Air Force jets targeted militant hideouts in Koki Khel area of Tirah, killing at least 21 suspected terrorists and razing several hideouts.

    Khyber Agency is one of seven semi-autonomous tribal districts where forces have traditionally had little control and militant groups thrive.

    The area is off-limits to journalists, making it difficult to independently verify the number and identity of the dead.

    Pakistan Army launched Operation Zarb-i-Azb, a grand operation in the North Waziristan tribal region, following a Taliban attack on the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi in June 2014.

    Since the beginning of Zarb-i-Azb, militants have fled to other tribal regions, including Khyber and its Tirah Valley and Shawal, all of which border Afghanistan.

    After the Dec 2014 carnage at Peshawar's Army Public School, the army and the government intensified operations against militants and their abettors in the country.

    At least six suspected militants killed, several injured

    PESHAWAR: At least six suspected militants were killed in air strikes carried out by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in the Rajgal area of Khyber Agency's Tirah Valley close to the Pak-Afghan border on Tueday.

    “PAF jets struck hideouts of the militants in Tirah valley,” said a security source.

    Several terrorists were also injured in the air strikes, the source added.

    Khyber Agency and North Waziristan are among Pakistan’s seven semi-autonomous tribal districts near the Afghan border, rife with homegrown insurgents and foreign militants.

    The tribal area is off limits to journalists, making it difficult to verify the identity and the number of dead.

    These areas have also been considered home to religious extremist organisations including Al Qaeda and the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

    Military operation Zarb-i-Azb and the National Action Plan were launched against insurgents following attacks on Karachi's Jinnah International Airport and Peshawar's Army Public School in 2014.

    Officials say nearly 3,400 militants have been killed since the launch of the latest offensive.

    The number of attacks in Pakistan has fallen around 70 per cent this year, due to a combination of a military offensive against Taliban bases along the Afghan border and government initiatives to tackle militancy.

    A good result. Attacks by these rats are now at an all time low.
