QUETTA, NOV 24 (DNA) – Two Army soldiers were martyred after terrorists attacked a checkpost of security forces in the Balochistan area of Tump. According to an ISPR statement released on Wednesday, “A group of externally sponsored terrorists fired onto a checkpost of security forces established in general area Tump, Balochistan, to prevent the movement of these terrorists into built-up areas.”
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement further said that the security forces responded with all the available weapons that resulted in heavy losses to the terrorists.
“During the engagement, however, two soldiers Sepoy Naseebullah, resident of Kharan, and Sepoy Insha Allah, resident of Lakki Marwat sacrificed their lives fighting valiantly,” said the ISPR.
The ISPR reminded that Pakistan’s security forces were determined to defeat such acts of cowardly terrorists that are hoping to disrupt “peace, stability and progress of Balochistan”.
This is the second time during this week that terrorists have attacked security forces in Balochistan. On Monday last, a soldier was martyred after a patrolling party of security forces was attacked in Panjgur. = DNA
