As many as two soldiers of the Pakistan Army on Friday embraced martyrdom while thwarting a terrorists’ attack on the checkpost of security forces in district Kech, Balochistan.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) news release, during an exchange of fire, Lance Naik Manzar Abbas, resident of district Khushab, and Sepoy Abdul Fath, resident of Khuzdar, embraced martyrdom.
A follow-up operation was in progress in the area to search the fleeing terrorists, it added.
“Security forces are determined to defeat such acts of inimical elements, aimed at disrupting peace, stability and progress of Balochistan,” the ISPR said. Last month, two security forces personnel were martyred during an engagement with a group of ‘externally sponsored terrorists’ after their checkpost was fired upon in Tump, Balochistan, the ISPR said.
“To prevent the movement of these terrorists into built-up areas, security forces responded with all available weapons, in which terrorists suffered heavy losses,” the military’s media wing had added. staff report
