ISLAMABAD: A Pakistan army soldier was killed during a shootout with alleged terrorists in the country’s volatile North Waziristan tribal district, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) — the military’s media wing — claimed on Monday.
In a statement, ISPR said the terrorists targeted a security check-post in North Waziristan’s Ghariuom area. Security forces responded promptly to the assault and Sepoy Muhammad Amir Iqbal (30) was killed in the ensuing fire exchange. Troops have launched an anti-operation in the area, the statement added.
The attack comes two days after terrorists targeted a vehicle of the Frontier Corps — a paramilitary force — in Spinwam, North Waziristan, killing four soldiers and a sub-inspector of the levies force. That strike was followed up by a statement that a clearance operation was underway to eliminate “any terrorist found in the area.”
While no group has claimed responsibility for the strikes, it occurred a day after Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a commander of Shura-i-Mujahideen, one of the factions of Pakistani Taliban, announced a ceasefire for 20 days. It followed Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan’s claim that his government would offer amnesty to members of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), who were willing to lay down their arms.
