A militant attack on an airbase in northwest Pakistan has left eight assailants dead.
The attack near the city of Peshawar also left two soldiers injured. Pakistan’s army says the militants were trying to force their way into the Badaber airbase but their attack was repelled. Peshawar is located in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal regions, which have been a hotbed of pro-Taliban militancy for years. Pakistani forces began a crackdown on militants in the areas last year. Officials claim that at least three thousand militants have so far died in the offensive.
