Soldier martyred in North Waziristan IED attack

A soldier was martyred on Saturday in a improvised explosive device attack in North Waziristan, the military’s media wing said.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations, the device exploded near a security forces check post on Boya Road in Miranshah.

“Sepoy Sajid, [aged] 33 years embraced shahadat,” said ISPR.

It added that security forces had “cordoned the area for a clearance operation”.

The soldiers were providing protection to construction teams working in the area.

The martyred soldiers were identified as follows:

– Lt Nasir Hussain Khalid, age 23 years and resident of Muzaffarabad.

– Naik Muhammad Imran, age 33 years, and resident of Faisalabad.

– Sepoy Usman Akhtar, age 30 years resident of Rawalpindi.
