Islamabad, Nov. 30 (ANI): Pakistani security forces killed eight Taliban insurgents in northwest tribal areas as part of the ongoing military offensive in South Waziristan, officials said.

"Four militants were killed and several others were wounded in search operations in different parts of Bara," The Dawn quoted a senior military official, as saying.

Also on Sunday, four militants were killed in Wana, the capital of South Waziristan where the military launched a massive ground and air offensive against the Taliban on October 17.

"Troops retaliated after militants fired rockets at their camp in Wana. Four militants were killed and two were arrested," a local military spokesman said.

The toll could not be confirmed as the area is out of bounds for journalists and most aid workers.

Ground troops and attack helicopters last week launched a fresh operation against militants in Khyber, which is on the main route for NATO supplies heading to foreign troops in Afghanistan. (ANI)
