Some details e.g. Cobra gunships were used!

ANGOR ADDA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistani forces killed 12 suspected Taliban and al Qaeda fighters on Thursday and arrested 10 in an operation near the Afghan border touted as a demonstration of commitment to the U.S.-led war on terror.



Small-arms fire crackled and a Cobra helicopter swooped overhead firing machineguns at positions in the rugged tribal country just a few kilometres from the Afghan frontier.


Reporters taken by helicopter to the scene, 350 km southwest of the capital Islamabad, saw four dead bodies under blankets and military officials said there were eight more bodies lying where they fell, some with Central Asian features.


"The fighting is still going on," said Major General Faisal Alavi. "Some of these guys got out of the houses and have gone into folds in the ground and into the trees. Our guys are trying to flush them out, but they are putting up very stiff resistance."


Two Pakistani soldiers were wounded by grenades.


Ten fighters were arrested, four possibly of Arabic origin and six apparently Pakistanis or Afghans. Some of the detainees were blindfolded and all had their hands tied behind their backs.


A large cache of arms, mines and basic surveillance equipment was found in one of the rebel compounds, located around 2 km from the dusty frontier town of Angor Adda.


Alavi, commander of special forces in the area where the operation is taking place, said some captives appeared to be from Afghanistan (news - web sites)'s ousted Taliban regime. The presence of foreign fighters at the scene suggested al Qaeda involvement.


The sweep came on the same day U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage had been expected in Pakistan on a regional tour. But his visit was delayed because of "scheduling issues", said Foreign Ministry spokesman Masood Khan.


The visit by Armitage, who has questioned the commitment of some in Pakistan's security community, would be rescheduled, Khan said. He is due to tour Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia.


FIGHTERS CROSS FROM AFGHANISTAN


Alavi told reporters Pakistani troops had surrounded a compound late on Wednesday where they believed al Qaeda fighters were hiding.


He said about 40 militants had been seen crossing into Pakistan's semi-autonomous South Waziristan agency carrying the bodies of fighters killed in clashes inside Afghanistan.


Afghanistan has long accused Islamabad of not doing enough to stop Islamic militants it says cross from Pakistan's remote border regions to carry out strikes on U.S. and Afghan targets.


Most of the cross-border raids have been blamed on remnants of the hardline Taliban regime ousted from power in late 2001 and resurgent in some parts of Afghanistan.


Major General Shaukat Sultan, Pakistan military spokesman, said the rebels in the latest clash could have been involved in the raids, including one on U.S. soldiers near their base at Shkin this week in which one soldier was killed and two injured.


Many Taliban and al Qaeda guerrillas are believed to have taken refuge in Pakistan's border areas since U.S. bombing began in Afghanistan two years ago.





Pakistan says it has arrested about 500 al Qaeda members since the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. They include Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the September 11 plot.

Pakistani and U.S. officials suspect that Saudi-born militant Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, may be hiding in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border area.

An audio tape purporting to be of Zawahri was aired on Arabic television channels last week in which he urged Pakistanis to overthrow Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf for "betraying" Islam by supporting U.S. military action in Afghanistan.

A Pakistani military statement said no foreign troops or agents were involved in the operation, a sensitive issue in a country where the Islamic right is flexing its political muscle and opposes the presence of U.S. intelligence agents.

"Being a frontline coalition partner in the war on terrorism, this operation manifests Pakistan's commitment to eliminate terrorism in all its forms from her soil," the military said.

For Gods sake you cant stop the disease. As long as you dont solve the root problems there will be no peace. that unfortunate but thats the reality.

There wouldn't be anything called Al-qaeda if muslim governments represented their own popullation.

what do you think?

No offence meant , peace

Re: Pakitan Army Operation at Angore Adda!!

exactly.
All this terrorism is result of injustice and attrocities on people all over the world.As hard we try to crush them more harder they become and more sympathies they get.We must solve the root causes which are breeding these tarrorists.Once there is justice and equality of maw this terrorism will die itself.
Why somwone rach at a stage where he sacrifise his mmost precious thing i.e life.There must be a reason he is doing this and we must understand and solve it.
I dont support suciede attacks but think from the prospective of palestinians,what should a guy do when his home destroyed,family humiliated maybe killed see rapes and no one to help.Israel has planes,tanks etc to carry their missiles and bombs but what they have?nothing.So their missile is their body and life.Thats really sad situation.I feel sorry for all the lives which are wasted no matter muslim or innocent non muslim.Govts are responsible for this.

Yes I agree with you Suleman.
One should see why a person becomes so desperate that he is ready to kill himself just to get revenge!?? This is the very reason why justice has to be done...this is all a result of injustice.
