According to the Pakistani military, two rebels were killed during a raid on a terrorist hideout in a former Taliban stronghold on Pakistan’s border near Afghanistan.

On Friday, Pakistan officials released a statement that troops had found a weapons cache at a militant hideout in North Waziristan, located in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the northwest of Pakistan.

Pakistani military routinely carries out such raids to find and arrest Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, also known as Taliban Pakistan.

Today’s military raid comes after Friday’s shootout in North Waziristan, a district of the northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and days after a suicide bomber attacked a mosque, killing 101 and injuring at least 225 in the provincial capital of Peshawar.

On the same day, Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif announced that he would meet with Imran Khan, his predecessor and the current opposition leader, next week to discuss a response to the recent violence.

After ending the ceasefire in November last year, TTP increased its attacks on Pakistani soldiers and police, foreign citizens, and military sites. The Afghan Taliban had brokered the months-long ceasefire.
