Mar 24, 2022: Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday that four soldiers had been killed in an attempt to thwart an incursion into the Afghan border.
The army’s media wing said the terrorists had tried to infiltrate into Pakistan from Afghanistan on the night of March 23-24 in the Hassan Khel area of North Waziristan.
“Due to alertness and timely response of the troops, the infiltration attempt was foiled. Terrorists retaliated with fire which was reciprocated in a befitting manner,” said the ISPR statement.
The terrorists, after failing to enter the country, fled away. And as per intelligence reports, they “suffered heavy casualties”.
“The Pakistan Army is determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” ISPR statement said.
The four soldiers who embraced martyrdom during the exchange of fire were identified as 34-year-old Lance Havaldar Wajahat Alam of Ghizer in Gilgit Baltistan, 25-year-old Sepoy Sajjid Inayat resident of Sheikhupura, 32-year-old Sepoy Maqbool Hayat, resident of Ghizer in Gilgit Baltistan, and 22-year-old Sepoy Sajjid Ali resident of Skardu.
