The elements from hostile Afghanistan continued hampering the border fencing process alongside the two countries as a serving major of the Pakistan Army and a soldier embraced martyrdom Friday when a squad of the security forces busy fencing in the Mohmand tribal district was hit by an IED planted by the terrorists from across the border.
The Inter Services Public Relations communiqué said Maj Adeel Shahid and Sepoy Faraz Hussein have fell victim to an Improvised Explosives Device planted by terrorists from across the border when a Pakistan Army squad was busy fencing the border along the Afghanistan in order to stop infiltration of the terrorists.
“Major Adeel Shahid & Sepoy Faraz Hussein embraced Shahadat on Pak-Afghan Border in Mohmand District. Squad under Shaheed officer was supervising fencing work in an area which carried critical infiltration route. Shaheeds fell victim to an IED planted by terrorists from across the border,” tweeted Director General Inter Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor.
Hardly a week back, it may be recalled, the alleged terrorists from the war-ridden neighbouring country opened indiscriminate firing on the Pak Army soldiers busy in border fencing at Pak-Afghan border in Dir district as the naked aggression from Afghanistan continued.
