Soldier martyred in Bannu attack



A security man was martyred in an improvised explosive device attack in the Jani Khel area of Bannu district, the military’s media wing said Monday.

In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations identified the martyred soldier as Sepoy Gul Sher, 24 years of age and a resident of the Khyber district.

“Sanitisation of the area is being carried out to eliminate any terrorists in the area,” the military’s media wing said.

The latest attack in the Bannu district comes almost a month after a soldier was martyred in a clash with terrorists as security forces conducted an intelligence-based operation.
