STORYLINE

AP Television has obtained video from a freelance journalist in South Waziristan which purportedly shows Pakistani military jets bombing targets in the town of Ladha.

The video is said to have been shot on Tuesday as Pakistani jets and helicopters apparently carried out an aerial attack on suspected Taliban targets in the Ladha area, one of three main Taliban strongholds in South Waziristan.

Smoke can be seen rising from buildings that were purportedly struck by bombs from the military jets.

AP Television could not independently verify the authenticity of the video.

In a press release on Thursday, the Pakistani military said that 28 militant fighters and five Pakistani soldiers had been killed in fighting in South Waziristan in the previous 24 hours.

The military press release also said that Pakistani forces had secured the area of Ladha Fort.

Previously, Pakistan's military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas had said that security forces had advanced into the Taliban stronghold amidst heavy clashes and "street-to-street fighting."

In the video shot by the freelancer on Tuesday, a purported Taliban fighter, named as Farhad Gaga, said that the Taliban was preparing to fight the army.

"They attack us and now we are fighting a protective war. That's why we take up arms against them, after all God's help is with us and we should be successful in this war," said Gaga.

The Pakistani military has been waging a 3-week long battle against entrenched Taliban and other militant fighters in the remote, rugged South Waziristan area, which borders Afghanistan.

Reports from the region are difficult to confirm because the area has been sealed off after the offensive that began mid-October.

The government only allows journalists into the battle zone on carefully orchestrated trips.
