Pakistani jets have struck hideouts of fighters in the northwest of the country, killing 15 people and wounding several others, military officials said.

The airstrikes on Sunday targeted four hideouts in the remote Ghaljo and Dabori areas of the northwestern Orakzai tribal region, according to the officials. The locations were being used by members of the Pakistan Taliban, they said.

The death toll could not be independently verified and fighters often dispute official figures.

The Pakistan military has been conducting operations against fighters in Orakzai for months. Several groups are active in the northwestern semi-autonomous tribal regions near the border with Afghanistan, including the Pakistan Taliban responsible for many of the bombings across the country in recent years.
