Two soldiers were martyred Tuesday when terrorists attacked security forces in Sararogha, South Waziristan District, said a statement issued by Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).

According to the military’s media wing ISPR, terrorists fired upon security forces in Sararogha, South Waziristan District.

“Own troops initiated a prompt response. However, during intense exchange of fire, two soldiers, having fought gallantly, embraced Shahadat,’ said the ISPR statement.

Those who embraced martyrdom include: Lance Naik Umar Ali Khan (age 26 years, resident of Bannu) and Sepoy Muhammad Siraj ud Din (age 23 years, resident of DI Khan).

The ISPR said area clearance is being carried out to eliminate any terrorists found in the area.

“Pakistan Army is determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” added the statement.
