Ten Soldiers Martyred In North Waziristan, Balochistan Terror Attacks

Ten soldiers were martyred in two separate terrorist attacks in North Waziristan and Balochistan, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

In North Waziristan, six army troops were martyred when terrorists from across the Afghan border opened fire on a patrolling party near the Gurbaz area.

Sharing the details, the ISPR said terrorists from across the border attacked the army border patrolling party, resulting in the loss of precious lives.

The martyred soldiers are: Havaldar Khalid, Sepoy Naveed, Sepoy Bachal, Sepoy Ali Raza, Sepoy Mohammad Babar and Sepoy Ahsan.

In the second incident, four armed forces personnel were martyred when a contingent of Frontier Corps (FC) troops was fired upon by militants during a combing/sensitisation operation between Hushab and Turbat, the ISPR said in a second press release.

The troops martyred in Balochistan include Capt Aaqib, Sepoy Nadir, Sepoy Atif Altaf and Sepoy Hafeezullah.

Paying rich tributes to the martyrs, Prime Minister Imran Khan in a tweet said, “I salute our armed forces personnel who continue to lay down their lives fighting terrorists to keep the nation safe.”

Similarly, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif expressed his regret and offered condolences to the families of martyrs. He said Afghanistan must take steps to curb terror activities within its territory.

Earlier, ISPR DG Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor vowed to foil the efforts aimed at destabilising Balochistan. “While the security of the tribal areas has been improved with efforts now focused on solidifying the western border, inimical forces are attempting to destabilise Balochistan,” he said.
