Pakistani fighter jets targeted a terrorist hideout in the restive northwestern South Waziristan tribal region on Saturday, killing at least 30 pro-Taliban militants.
Air strikes in the Shawal mountains in South Waziristan left 30 militants dead on Saturday morning, said a statement issued by a military spokesman.
A militant hideout in the Shawal mountains was targeted after security forces received a tip off that militants were hiding in the area, the statement said.
The Pakistani army mobilised 30,000 soldiers to launch a major ground offensive against the Taliban in South Waziristan in October last year.
The military claims that over 600 militants have been killed in the operation so far.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan chief Hakimullah Mehsud, who fled from South Waziristan, reportedly died of wounds sustained in a US drone strike last month
