Two Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack in North Waziristan on Tuesday, the military’s media affairs wing said.
In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that security forces were conducting a clearance operation in the district’s Dosalli area when the IED exploded.
As a result, 25-year-old Sepoy Zia Akram and 20-year-old Sepoy Musawwar Khan were martyred, it said.
Akram hailed from Muzaffarabad while Khan was a resident of Bajaur, according to the ISPR.
Pakistan Army troops immediately cordoned off the area to apprehend the terrorists who had planted the IED, the statement said.
