A Pakistan Army soldier Naik Zia-ud-Din, a resident of Mardan, got critically injured and embraced martyrdom during the intense exchange of fire as terrorists targeted a military post in Sararogha, South Waziristan District.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), on the night of 11/12 August, a Pakistan Army military post in Sararogha detected a suspicious move of 3-4 terrorists in its area of responsibility.

A Quick Reaction Force (QRF) was immediately dispatched to challenge the suspected terrorists; however, the troops were fired upon, ISPR said.

Due to effective response, one terrorist got killed and another was apprehended in injured condition, added the military media wing.

The apprehended terrorist later revealed that they planned to conduct a fire raid on the military post.

ISPR further said that Pakistan Army is determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism. Sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve, it added.

Earlier, three militants were killed during an operation conducted in the Kurram district after receiving information about their presence.

The ISPR said that Captain Basit Ali, 25, and Sepoy Hazrat Bilal, 22, were martyred in an exchange of fire with the militants.

Captain Basit belonged to Haripur district and Sepoy Bilal hailed from Orakzai tribal district.

The officials said that three other soldiers of Frontier Corps sustained wounds.

Paramilitary forces were conducting the operation in the mountainous area in the east of Parachinar to find five kidnapped workers of a cellular company.

The encounter between the security personnel and the militants occurred. The ISPR said that a cordon and search operation were in progress in the area to eliminate other militants.

Security forces had conducted multiple operations against militants and the area was de-notified as a conflict zone in 2011.
