KURRAM: Seven militants have been killed as gunship helicopters targeted militant hideouts in Masozai area of central Kurram Agency, on Monday.

According to official sources, over the last 24 hours, security forces have killed at least 22 militants.

Militants were given a one-hour deadline to vacate Jani Kot, Tar-ali and Sultani areas prompting residents to shift to safer areas.

Although security forces are facing severe resistance from militants in the area, they have managed to destroy some of their hideouts and have arrested dozens of them.
