A lieutenant and another two soldiers embraced martyrdom in a terror attack in North Waziristan on Thursday.

An IED (improvised explosive device), planted by terrorists along a roadside in the Ghariom sector, exploded martyring Lt Nasir Hussain, Naik Muhammad Imran and Sepoy Usman Akhtar, ISPR said.

Four soldiers sustained injuries in the attack, the military media wing said. The security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation.
