Lahore , May 19 (ANI): More than 28 Taliban extremists and two Pakistani soldiers were killed in an ambush in the Orakzai region of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) on Wednesday, officials said.
The encounter took place after over 200 Taliban attacked a security check post in the region, The Nation reports.
The death toll was hard to be verified independently as the media is barred from visiting the war-zone.
The Pakistan military has intensified its operation in FATA killing scores of militants in the last fortnight.
Several army personnel have also been killed in the offensive, which is targeted at flushing out the militants from the region. (ANI)
