Four soldiers of the Pakistan Army were martyred during an intelligence based operation in North Waziristan, said the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement.

“4 terrorists killed during an IBO in Vezhda Sar, 8 kms South West of Boya, Miranshah, North Wazirstan District,” the military’s media wing said in the communique released on Sunday.

“Sanitisation force conducted operation against terrorists’ hideout in Vezhda Sar this morning. As soon as the troops cordoned off the area, terrorist opened fire,” it said and added, “all dug out terrorists were shot down by security forces.”

“In exchange of fire, 4 soldiers embraced shahadat. Later the Area cleared by sanitisation force. Shaheeds include; Sepoy Muhammad Ismail Khan, Sepoy Muhammad Shahbaz Yasin, Sepoy Raja Waheed Ahmed and Sepoy Muhammad Rizwan Khan.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif paid tribute to the men martyred in the attack.

“No sacrifice is greater than the supreme sacrifice of life for the motherland. Valiant soldiers of our armed forces who laid down their lives in operation in North Waziristan are our heroes. The nation will remain grateful to them for their sacrifices. Rest in peace!”

In May, seven soldiers were martyred during two different terror attacks in Balochistan, wherein the terrorists had targeted the vehicle with improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
