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.
