Eleven suspected terrorists including two commanders of banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were killed while trying to enter Pakistan from Afghanistan on Sunday.
The militants were rounded up by security forces in Superkot and Para Chamkani areas of Kurram tribal region. Two TTP commanders identified as Amin Shogray and Zubair alias Sangray were among eleven terrorists killed in the exchange of fire.
Security forces have launched countrywide combing operations after recent wave of terrorist attacks this week.
Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan said Saturday that foreign hand is behind recent terrorist attacks.
He did not mention any country but said the culprits involved in Lahore and Peshawar incidents have been identified and it is proved that terrorists are using Afghan refugees as facilitators for their acts.
More operations will be carried out in the coming days to apprehend the foreign elements and their local facilitators, the minister told reporters in Islamabad.
