Pakistani soldier martyred in terrorists’ firing at Afghan border

A Pakistan Army soldier was martyred in terrorists firing from across the Afghan border in Bajaur district.

According to a tweet by Director General Inter Services Public Relations on Wednesday, the terrorists target a Pakistani Army post along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Resultantly, Havaldar Tanveer embraced shahadat while another soldier got injured in the terrorists’ firing.

On September 22 last, an Army soldier was also martyred in an attack on a Pakistani post from across the border in Bajaur. The soldier embraced martyrdom in the firing that came from across the Afghan border. The soldier was identified as 24-year-old Sepoy Sabir Shah.

The ISPR had then said that Pakistan had been consistently raising the issue for border management on the other side to avoid the use of Afghanistan’s soil against Pakistan.
