Islamabad, July 8 (ANI): Pakistani fighter jets continued to pound militant hideouts in the Orakzai Agency of the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) killing at least 15 extremists and injuring 20 others on Thursday.

Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Athar Abbas also admitted that some of pockets of resistance existed in the region and that the military would soon weed out militants from agency completely. (ANI)
