ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan offered his condolences to the families of the three soldiers who were martyred in a terrorist attack on Pakistani security forces in North Waziristan.
“My condolences and prayers go to the families of our three soldiers martyred while repulsing condemnable terrorist attack in Alwara area of N Waziristan. We salute the bravery and sacrifices of our soldiers in combating terrorists,” the premier tweeted.
On Wednesday, Lance Naik Ali, Lance Naik Nazir and Sepoy Imdad Ullah were martyred and seven other soldiers were injured when 60-70 terrorists from across the border attacked Pakistani security forces fencing the Pak-Afghan border in North Waziristan.
Several terrorists were killed in retaliatory firing by the Pakistan Army.
In a statement, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Pakistan will continue to fence the border despite all obstacles.
There is a need for Afghan security forces and officials to have effective control on their border. Afghan soil should not be used against Pakistan, the statement further said.
