A Pakistan Army soldier was martyred after terrorists from inside Afghanistan opened fire on a military post at border near North Waziristan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Saturday.

The military’s media wing said the Pakistani troops gave a befitting response to the terrorists, but 32-year-old Sepoy Umar Daraz, resident of Jhang, received a bullet injury and embraced martyrdom.
