LANDI KOTAL: Pakistan Air Force gunship helicopters bombed and destroyed five bases of alleged terrorists in various areas of Tirah Valley, Zakha Khel and Sepah tribes in the far-flung areas of Khyber Agency on Sunday.
According to reports, more than five suspected terrorists were killed and many others were injured in the shelling of the gunship helicopters. The armed lashkar of Zakha Khel had attacked the headquarter of Lashkar-e-Islam (LI) in Nari Baba, a far-flung area of Tirah.
Twenty-six prisoners have also reportedly fled from the privately-owned jails of LI, led by Mangal Bagh, who had been kidnapped from various parts of Khyber Agency for ransom, local sources said.
The former rebel commanders of LI have also covertly joined the Zakha Khel tribe fighters to fight Mangal Bagh-led forces in Tirah Valley, sources from Zakha Khel revealed.
