Six terrorist hideouts were destroyed in the raids in Khyber Agency's Rajgal Valley that also killed nine militants, according to a statement issued by the Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR).

Large dumps of arms and ammunition were targeted in air raids and ground operations in the treacherous terrain, the statement added.

The operation was part of Khyber-III, launched on Tuesday, which targets terrorists holed up in the area beyond Tirah Valley, right on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

On Wednesday, 14 terrorists were killed in air strikes in the high-mountainous region where the proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan had a strong presence, The Express Tribune reported.

The toll from three days of the military operation so far stands at 27 dead, including two soldiers.
