Template:Infobox military conflict Template:Campaignbox Waziristan Mohmand Offensive also known as Operation Brekhna (Template:Lang-en) is a Pakistani military operation against the Tehrik-i-Taliban in the Mohmand Agency area of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas that began on 2009.[1] It is part of the ongoing War in North-West Pakistan.

Start of Offensive[edit | edit source]

In late 2009 the Pakistani military had been engaged in a campaign to clear militants from the Mohmand Agency, with the commander of forces in the area claiming that 80 percent of militants had been cleared as of September 2009.[1] The area, which borders Kunar Province, Afghanistan, had been the scene of violence prior to the attack as a result of spillover from neighbouring Afghanistan and other areas of Pakistan.[1]
