FivePESHAWAR: Security forces arrested five suspected members of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Khyber Agency on Thursday.

A suspected TTP commander from Khyber Agency, Ababel, was also amongst those arrested. He was also allegedly involved in multiple attacks on security forces in the area.

The Pakistan Army has killed more than 2,700 militants during Operation Zarb-i-Azb in North Waziristan since June last year, following a deadly attack on Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport, destroying more than 800 of their hideouts.
