Militants attacked Pakistan army leaving at least 35 dead

On February 2, a group of 40 militants attacked the army of Pakistan near the town of Serai Naurang in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in northwest of the country, leaving at least 35 people dead after hours of battle.

Around 12 militants, 13 security personnel and 10 civilians have been killed during the attack.

The Pakistani Taliban claimed the responsibility of the attack, saying it was in revenge for a drone strike in nearby North Waziristan last month that killed two of its commanders.

Pakistan’s army confirmed the assault and said it has responded with full force.
