A soldier of Pakistan Army embraced martyrdom on Saturday during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan district’s Mir Ali area, the military said in a statement.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), an intense exchange of fire took place between the troops and terrorists during the operation.

“Own troops effectively engaged terrorists’ location. However, during the operation, Sepoy Shakeel Shafqat (age 21 years, resident of District Khanewal), having fought gallantly, embraced Shahadat,” it added.

ISPR said that sanitisation of the area is being carried out to eliminate any terrorists found in the area. “Security forces of Pakistan are determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” it further said.
