As terrorists attacked a military checkpoint in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) Bannu area, a Pakistan Army soldier embraced martyrdom, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement released on Friday.
In a statement released by the military’s media wing, terrorists claimed responsibility for opening fire on a military checkpoint in Bannu’s Jani Khel town on the night of January 13-14. In addition, the army personnel responded quickly and successfully engaged the terrorists’ location, according to the statement.
During a violent exchange of fire, a soldier, Sarfaraz Ali, 26 years old, chose martyrdom over his life.
Earlier in the month, the security forces carried out separate Intelligence-Based Operations (IBOs) in Tank, the village of Kot Kili in the South Waziristan province, and Dera Ismail Khan (DI Khan) to investigate the presence of terrorists in the area.
According to the army’s media wing, two terrorists were killed, three were captured, and one terrorist surrendered to security forces as a result of the military operations.
According to the ISPR, the terrorists’ weapons and a large quantity of ammunition, including improvised explosive devices and rockets, were also confiscated. During a ferocious exchange of gunfire, two troops chose martyrdom for themselves.
According to an ISPR press release, the deceased troops were identified as Sepoy Faridullah (31) of Karak and Sepoy Shuaib Hassan (29) of Dera Ismail Khan, both residents of Dera Ismail Khan.
