At least one army soldier was martyred on Saturday in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan district, said the military’s media wing.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), terrorists fired at a military post in Shewa.
Army troops responded befittingly and effectively engaged the terrorists. During an intense exchange of fire, 32-year-old Naik Noor Merjan embraced Shahadat.
He was a resident of Kurram. His funeral prayers will be held in his native town.
A clearance operation is being carried out to eliminate any remaining terrorists in the area.
