35 Taliban militants killed in Pakistan

Jun 9 2013, 9:40am CDT | by

Islamabad, June 9 (IANS) At least 35 Taliban militants were killed and 15 others injured in a military operation Sunday in Pakistan's northwest tribal region, the army said.

Islamabad, June 9 — At least 35 Taliban militants were killed and 15 others injured in a military operation Sunday in Pakistan's northwest tribal region, the army said.

One soldier was also killed and five others were injured in the clashes in Tirah Valley of the Khyber Agency bordering Afghanistan, Xinhua cited a military statement as saying.

Security forces have cleared many areas of the strategic Maidan region, taking full control of heights that overlook the Kuki Khel Valley.

Terrorists were also flushed out of heights of another key area, Darwazgai Kandao, the statement said.

The Taliban did not responded to the army's claims.

Tirah was under the control of the Taliban and the lesser-known Lashkar-e-Islam group.

Jul 18 2014 1:31pm CDT | Source: Big Government

While Gazans, their Hamas leadership and pro-Palestinian supporters around the world condemn Israel's Operation Protective Edge, now turning into a ground invasion, its time Muslims examined the Other Occupation: the inexorable advance of political Islamism over Islam.

For years, Pakistan has consistently renewed its international image as a country of grave concern, with not only its inability to halt the progress of terrorist and militant groups within the country but also its inability to provide basic needs of its own population.
