Seven Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred after militants assaulted a military convoy near the Afghan border in North Waziristan, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
Terrorists attacked a vehicle carrying members of the security forces in the Isham area of the tribal district on April 14, according to the military’s media wing. It went on to say that the army replied immediately by fighting the attackers efficiently.
A total of four terrorists were killed in the ensuing engagement, according to the ISPR, which also stated that seven soldiers were martyred during the heavy exchange of fire in North Waziristan.
Havaldar Tariq Yousaf, Sepoy Suleman Waqas, Sepoy Junaid Ali, Sepoy Ijaz Hussain, Sepoy Waqar Ahmed, Sepoy Muhammad Jawad Ameer, and Sepoy Arshad Ali were among that martyred in the attack.
An operation to clear the region of terrorists was undertaken in the immediate aftermath of the attack.
“The Pakistan Army is dedicated to eliminating the threat of terrorism, and such sacrifices made by our gallant warriors only serve to enhance our determination,” the ISPR stated.
