RAWALPINDI: Three Pakistan Army soldiers have embraced martyrdom while responding to a cross border attack in the Dewagar area of North Waziristan.
According to Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR), the terrorists crossed the border from Afghanistan and opened fire on Pakistani troops who responded befittingly and inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorists.
The martyred soldiers include 30-year-old Hawaldar Taimur from Jehlum, 38 -year-old Naik Shoaib from Attock and 24 -year-old Sepoy Saqib from Sialkot.
