*RAWALPINDI: A Pakistan Army soldier embraced martyrdom in a cross-border attack from Afghanistan in Kurram district, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday.*
According to the ISPR, terrorists from inside Afghanistan opened fire on Pakistani troops in the general area of Kharlachi in Kurram district of the KP province.
The Pakistani troops responded in a befitting manner with terrorists suffering heavy casualties, the military’s media wing said.
It, however, said that during the exchange of fire, Sepoy Jamshed Iqbal, aged 27 years and a resident of Chiniot, fought gallantly and embraced martyrdom.
The ISPR said that Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan and expects that the interim Afghan government will not allow such activities in the future.
“Pakistan Army is determined to defend Pakistan’s borders against the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve.”
