Nine armed men, who attacked Pakistan air force training base Mianwali, Punjab on Saturday, have been killed by the Pak military as per the media reports. According to the Reuters news agency, three militants were killed before they entered the base and the other three had been cornered. Three aircraft and a fuelling tanker have been damaged in the latest terror attack.

Tehreek-e Jihad (TTP), a Pakistan-based terror group has reportedly claimed the responsibility of the attack, Pakistani military said. The military said an operation is under way to clear the area.

As per the Pakistani authorities, militants of TTP group have become emboldened while living openly in Afghanistan since the Taliban takeover of that country in 2021.

The TTP or Pakistani Taliban is allied with the Afghan Taliban, a separate group that seized power in Afghanistan in 2021 as the United States and NATO troops were in the final stages of their pullout.

Earlier last week, terrorists launched two separate attacks on security forces in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

In the Tirah area of Khyber District, an Intelligence-Based Operation (IBO) was conducted, resulting in an intense exchange of fire.

At that time, one terrorist was killed, and two terrorists were injured and subsequently apprehended by security forces.

In another incident, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated in the Sarwekai area of the South Waziristan District, where two soldiers, Sepoy Banaras Khan lost their lives in the line of duty.
