AROUND 300 FAMILIES OF NWA REPATRIATED FROM AFGHANISTAN

In North Waziristan, around 300 families have been repatriated from the Khost province of Afghanistan and returned via Ghulam Khan border.

Due to the continued snow falling and harsh weather conditions the returned tribesmen are facing difficulties from Afghanistan.

According to official figures, about 9000 families from the North Waziristan agency had migrated to Afghanistan after the launch of the Operation Zarb-e-Azb by Pakistan Army against militants.
