OSINT SUMMARY

Pakistani JetSunday 15th November 2015, Pakistani warplanes bombarded militant’s hideouts in the country’s volatile frontier bordering Afghanistan killing at least 22 terrorists

The military air operations that began on Saturday targeted Taliban’s hideouts at various separate locations in North Waziristan’s Shawal area.

The aerial bombardments saw six terrorist hideouts and unconfirmed numbers of their vehicles destroyed in the airstrike an official said.

A second Pakistani security official confirmed the airstrikes and the death toll though exact number could not be independently verified.

Pakistan has been conducting major offensives against terrorist hideouts across the troubled northwestern tribal regions from June last year when militants raided Karachi International Airport ending the government efforts to initiate peace talks.

Pakistan also intensified the military operations after pro-Taliban elements killed over 150 most of them children in an armed assault on a school in Peshawar in December 2014.

More than 3,600 militants have been killed since Pakistan entered an alliance with the US in 2001. Thousands Pakistanis have also been displaced by the wave of violence and militancy sweeping across the country.
