Unknown terrorists attacked a military post in North Waziristan on Monday and a military official embraced martyrdom during an exchange of fire with them, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

According to the spokesperson of the Pakistan Army, terrorists opened fire on a military post in Ghariom, North Waziristan district and during an exchange of fire, Naik Ghulam Mustafa (37) embraced martyrdom.

Naik Mustafa was a resident of Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir. 

The ISPR DG said: “Own troops responded in a befitting manner and sanitization of the area is being carried out to eliminate any terrorists in the area.”

On July 15, terrorists targeted security forces using an IED in Khuda Bux Bazar near Pasni where officer Captain Affan Masood and Sepoy Babar Zaman embraced martyrdom.

The troops carried out a search operation to apprehend the perpetrators.

The ISPR DG said, “Such cowardly acts by inimical elements, backed by hostile intelligence agencies (HIAs) cannot sabotage the hard-earned peace and prosperity in Balochistan. Security forces are determined to neutralize such nefarious designs at all costs.”
