Five checkposts blown up in Mohmand
GHALANAI: Militants blew up five Khasadar checkposts in the Pindyali tehsil of Mohmand Agency, around five kilometres from agency headquarters Ghalanai, late on Monday night, but no casualties were reported.
Sources said militants attacked two checkposts at Waran Pul and one each in the Baqi Tambu and Jan Sher areas. The Waran Pul checkposts were totally destroyed, while the rest were partially damaged, they added.
Militants also attacked the tehsil office with explosives, leaving the building damaged. However, security forces did not retaliate, the sources said. The Frontier Constabulary launched a major operation in the agency earlier this month. Many locals fled the area as the military pounded militant positions.
