Seven paramilitary soldiers were martyred in a gunbattle with terrorists in the Balochistan area of Harnai, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement, the terrorists targeted an FC checkpost in Harnai with indiscriminate gunfire late on Saturday night, which turned into a gunbattle resulting in the death of seven soldiers.

The ISPR said the seven soldiers embraced martyrdom while trying to repulse the terrorists’ attack.

The security forces have surrounded the area to hunt down the terrorists. During the search operation, the forces seized a large quantity of ammunition and weapons.

The ISPR said such coward acts cannot sabotage peace efforts in the province. “We will foil every plot of the terrorists,” the ISPR added.

Naib Subedar Gulzar, Sepoy Faisal, Sepoy Sher Zaman, Sepoy Jamal, Sepoy Abdur Rauf, Sepoy Abdul Wakeel and Sepoy Faqir Muhamamd were among the martyred.
