5 TTP militants arrested from Khyber Agency

Security forces arrested five suspected members of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Khyber Agency on Thursday.

According to security sources, the arrested militants were wanted in criminal cases, including attacks on security check posts and installations.

A suspected TTP commander from Khyber Agency, Ababel, was also amongst those arrested. He was also allegedly involved in multiple attacks on security forces in the area.

The latest arrests are a result of various search operations that are being conducted in the volatile tribal agency.

The Pakistan Army has killed more than 2,700 militants during Operation Zarb-i-Azb in North Waziristan since June last year, following a deadly attack on Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport, destroying more than 800 of their hideouts.
