The Pakistani army announced the killing of five militants in a military operation in the northwest of the country.

The army said, in a statement, that its forces carried out an intelligence operation in the Mir Ali area north of Waziristan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, adding that the gunmen were involved in terrorist acts against security forces, and that weapons and ammunition were found with them.

The Pakistani government is waging battles against armed groups in many provinces of the country, after militant attacks led to the deaths of many civilians, soldiers, and security forces.

Earlier in December, 25 Pakistani soldiers were killed in two incidents in one day in Kulachi and Darazinda. (QNA)
