RAWALPINDI: In an operation against terrorists in North Waziristan and South Waziristan, one militant was killed in each district while a soldier, Naik Fazal Janan, lost his life in the line of duty, said ISPR.
The Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) issued a statement on the operations, mentioning that weapons and ammunition were seized from the terrorists.
On April 8, 2023, two separate encounters between troops and terrorists occurred in Razmak and Karama. The troops engaged the terrorists’ locations effectively, resulting in the killing of one terrorist in each district. The troops also recovered weapons and ammunition.
However, Naik Fazal Janan, a 32-year-old soldier from District Hangu, was martyred during the exchange of fire.
The area is now being sanitized to eliminate any other potential terrorists. The ISPR emphasized that security forces are determined to eradicate terrorism and that the sacrifices of brave soldiers like Naik Fazal Janan only strengthen their resolve.
