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. 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. 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.
