RAWALPINDI – Two soldiers were martyred after terrorists attacked a military post in the Datta Khel town of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan district.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), 27-year-old Naik Rehman, a resident of Chitral, and 22-year-old Lance Naik Arif, a resident of Tank, embraced martyrdom during an “intense exchange of fire” with the terrorists.
A search operation has been launched in the area to eliminate terrorists, said ISPR.
Earlier this week, two soldiers were martyred after a group of externally sponsored terrorists opened fire onto a check post of security forces established in general area Tump, Balochistan to prevent the movement of the terrorists into built-up areas.
Security forces responded with all available weapons, in which terrorists suffered heavy losses.
During the engagement, however, two soldiers, Sepoy Naseeb Ullah resident of Kharan and Sepoy Insha Allah resident of Lakki Marwat sacrificed their lives fighting valiantly.
It is reminded that Pakistan’s Security Forces remain determined to defeat acts of cowardly terrorists, aimed at disrupting peace, stability and Progress of Balochistan.
