Large Network Of 156 Taliban Caves Found In Pakistan

March 3, 2010

Pakistan (ChattahBox) – A complex series of hidden tunnels through connected caves has been found near the Afghanistan border.

The cave netword was found during a military offensive by Pakistani forces that killed seventy-five militants earlier this week.

They have been used by Taliban militants to keep in view of the Afghan border while offering a secure place to reside within Pakistan.

The 156 caves were carved into the rock of the mountain, and are believed to have taken between five and seven years to complete.

“Al-Qaeda was there. They had occupied the ridges. There were 156 caves designed as a defensive complex,” Major General Tariq Khan said.

“We have now cleared this area till the Afghan border, military operation is in its final stages and policing has been started.”

The operation that uncovered the caves was named a success, as the 75 killed, 76 arrested, and 364 forced to surrender showed the network to be a major military outpost for the Taliban.
