According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), three Pakistan Army soldiers accepted death after terrorists from inside Afghanistan across the international border opened fire on Pakistani forces in general area Dewagar, North Waziristan District, on Saturday.
According to the military’s media wing, Pakistani forces responded appropriately, and terrorists sustained severe fatalities, according to trustworthy intelligence assessments.
However, three Pakistan Army men accepted martyrdom during the exchange of fire, according to the ISPR.
According to the ISPR, during the shootout, Havaldar Taimoor (Jhelum resident, 30 years old), Sepoy Saqib Nawaz (Sialkot resident, 24 years old), and Naik Shoaib (Attock resident, 38 years old) accepted martyrdom after fighting gallantly.
“Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for anti-Pakistan actions and hopes that the Afghan government would not permit such activities in the future,” the military’s media arm stated.
It went on to say that the Pakistan Army is dedicated to defend Pakistan’s frontiers against the threat of terrorism, and that “such sacrifices by our gallant warriors further enhance our determination.”
‘The situation on the western border has deteriorated.’
Director News Geo News Rana Javad commented on the issue, saying that the situation at the Western border has increased, “which is really frightening.”
“We are constantly receiving news of martyrs, despite the fact that Pakistan has done border fence and has also complained against the presence of terrorists in Afghanistan,” he added, adding that the border situation isn’t “stabilising.”
Javad went on to say that the Pakistani government should take this seriously and that all institutions should be on the same page because “collaborative efforts are the need of the hour.”
“After a lot of struggles, Pakistan has achieved this peace, and every life matters,” he added, emphasising that the situation is “alarming.”
He went on to say that the Afghan government should work with Pakistan to find such terrorists since Islamabad has always been supportive of the neighbouring country and has addressed the subject of Kabul’s humanitarian problem at numerous international forums.
“To assure the removal of terrorist facilities operating in Afghanistan, Pakistan must launch a thorough counteroffensive.” “Both countries should collaborate,” he said.
