Two soldiers martyred as army thwarts terrorists attempt to cross into Pakistan
Two soldiers were martyred after the army thwarted an “attempted illegal crossing” by terrorists into Pakistan from Afghanistan, said the military media wing on Wednesday.
“On night 26-27 October 2021, terrorists from inside Afghanistan attempted to cross the fence along Pak-Afghan Border in district Kurram,” said the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The ISPR said that the troops initiated a prompt response and thwarted the attempted illegal crossing by engaging with the terrorists.
However, during the “intense” exchange of fire 24-year-old Lance Naik Asad and 21-year-old Sepoy Asif were martyred. Asad was a resident of Kurram while Asif hailed from Lakki Marwat.
“Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan and expects that interim Afghan Government will not allow such activities against Pakistan, in future,” said the ISPR.
The military’s media wing assured that the army was “determined to guard Pakistan’s frontiers” against terrorism, adding that “such sacrifices” by the “brave soldiers further strengthens” their “resolve”.
