North Waziristan: Three soldiers of the Pakistan army were martyred when terrorists opened fire on Pakistani troops from inside Afghanistan in the general area of Dewagar, North Waziristan District.
According to the ISPR, our troops responded in a befitting manner. Due to an effective response from the Pakistan Army, terrorists suffered heavy casualties, an intelligence report said.
However, during the fire exchange, Havaldar Taimoor, of Jhelum, age 30 years, Naik Shoaib, resident of Attock, age 38 years and Sepoy Saqib Nawaz, resident of Sialkot, age 24 years, having fought gallantly, embraced shahadat.
Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan and expects that the Afghan Government will not allow the operation of such activities in future.
“Pak Army is determined to defend Pakistan’s borders against the menace of terrorism, and such sacrifices of our brave men further strengthen our resolve,” the ISPR said.
