Soldier martyred, 4 terrorists killed in North Waziristan gunbattle

A Pakistani Army soldier was martyred and four terrorists were killed in a gunbattle in North Waziristan, said a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Sunday.

According to the ISPR, the security forces conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) on a hideout of the terrorists near Kaitu River in North Waziristan’s area of Spinwam.

As soon as the security forces cordoned off the area, the terrorists opened fire on the troops. Their reaction was aimed at fleeing the areas. However, all four terrorists were killed in the exchange of fire with the security forces personnel.

During the intense exchange of fire, Sepoy Sadam, aged 27 years, resident of Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, embraced shahadat while two other soldiers got injured.
