Bomb explosion kills two volunteers of Tawheedul Islam in Bokhar area of Tirrah. The Zakha Khel based pro government militant faction identified as Tawheedul Islam has lost two volunteers in a bomb blast near their post at Bokhar in Tirrah side, administration sources said. Some local sources also doubted that some important figures might have been killed in the explosion but it could neither be confirmed from administration nor the local sources. It is to be recalled that Zakha Khel based Tawheedul Islam, which is a pro government militant group, has been fighting against the Mangal Bagh led Lashker Islam for the last two years. Consequently, both sides have lost dozens of their fighters so far. The Zakha Khel group has been successful in establishing the writ of the government in the area and restoring complete peace in their respective areas of Bazaar Zakha Khel, which is on the border with Tirrah Bokhar etc. Skirmishes between TI and LI have been taking place with intervals or intermittently.
