Rawalpindi: Two soldiers of the Pakistan Army embraced martyrdom when terrorists from across the border, inside Afghanistan, attacked a military post in Dwatoi, North Waziristan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Own troops responded in a befitting manner. During an exchange of fire, 2 soldiers, Havaldar Saleem, age 43 years, and Lance Naik Pervaiz, age 35 years, embraced shahadat,” Pak Army’s media wing statement said and added, “Pakistan has consistently been asking Kabul to ensure effective border control on Afghan side.”

“Pakistan strongly condemns the continuous use of Afghan soil for terrorist activities against Pakistan,” it read.
