Rawalpindi: Pakistan Army has effectively responded and repulsed an attack by terrorists from across the border along Pak-Afghan border in Alwara area of North Waziristan, killing scores of terrorists.

According to ISPR, a group of sixty to seventy terrorists from across the border attacked Pakistani troops undertaking fencing effort along the Pak-Afghan border inside their own territory.

In exchange of fire three soldiers Lance Naik Ali, Lance Naik Nazeer and Sepoy Imdad Ullah embraced martyrdom, while seven others got injured.

While Pakistan security forces are solidifying border security through fencing and construction of forts to deny liberty of action to the terrorists, Afghan Security Forces and the authorities need to have more effective control in border region to support Pakistan’s efforts as well as deny use of Afghan soil against Pakistan. Pakistan’s fencing effort shall continue despite all such impediments.
