Five soldiers were martyred and five others were injured in two cross-border attacks in North and South Waziristan tribal districts on Wednesday.

Terrorists based in Afghanistan attacked a check post of Frontier Corps (FC) in Khaisura, Faqir Killi, in South Waziristan, in which three soldiers were martyred and three others were injured, security sources said.

The terrorists attacked the check post with small and heavy arms due to which Naik Ali Zar Betani, Lance Naik Asim, and Sepoy Babar Mohmand were martyred, while Sepoys Hazrat Hussain and Sardar Shah Kundi, and Imran were injured.

In North Waziristan, two Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred after terrorists attacked a security forces check post near the Dwatoi area.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Army troops retaliated to the cross-border firing from Afghanistan.

During the exchange of fire, two soldiers identified as Havaldar Saleem, 43, and Lance Naik Pervaiz, 35, were martyred, while two soldiers identified as Havaldar Ghaus and Sepoy Rehman were injured.

The ISPR said Pakistan has consistently been asking Afghanistan to ensure effective border control on their side.

“Pakistan strongly condemns the continuous use of Afghan soil for terrorist activities against Pakistan,” it said.

On June 19, two terrorists were killed, while a soldier embraced martyrdom during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in the Spinwam area of North Waziristan.

Following an intense exchange of fire, the two terrorists were eliminated, the ISPR said, adding that the slain terrorists were affiliated with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). During the IBO, a soldier of the Pakistan Army Naik Nazakat Khan embraced martyrdom.
