A large number of suspected Taliban militants attacked a depot handling supplies for NATO troops in Afghanistan, said Pakistani police.
According to police, as many as eight vehicles were destroyed in attack at the terminal outside the northwestern city of Peshawar. However, no NATO supplies were lost, said officials.
The violence at the depot follows an intensifying army offensive in Taliban stronghold. On Tuesday, army helicopters dropped troops behind Taliban positions in the Piochar area, which is reportedly a stronghold of Taliban commander Maulana Fazlullah.
As per military figures, nearly 751 militants have been eliminated since the commencement of the offensive last week.
Separately Tuesday, Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari appealed to the world to help more than one million civilians displaced by the fighting.
The United Nations refugee agency airlifted 120 tons of relief supplies into Pakistan Tuesday, including mosquito nets, plastic sheets for emergency shelters and two portable warehouses.
