Ten Pakistan Army soldiers embraced martyrdom as terrorists attacked a checkpoint in Kech district of Balochistan, the 24News HD TV channel reported on Thursday

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the terrorists stormed the security forces’ post on the night of Jan 25-26.

It added: "During intense exchange of fire, one terrorist was killed and several injured. While repulsing terrorists' fire raid, 10 soldiers embraced martyrdom.

The ISPR said three terrorists were nailed in the follow-up clearance operation that was going on. "The armed forces are determined to eliminate terrorists from our soil no matter what the cost," the ISPR statement said.

A soldier was martyred after terrorists attacked a military post in Bannu's Janikhel earlier in the ongoing month. On January 5, two soldiers were martyred and as many terrorists killed in two separate intelligence-based operations (IBOs) conducted by security forces in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Last month, four soldiers of the Pakistan Army embraced martyrdom in an exchange of fire with terrorists during an IBO in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan tribal district.
