Three soldiers were wounded during a landmine explosion and firing from across the Afghan border in South Waziristan and North Waziristan tribal districts on Sunday.
The Inter-Services PR (ISPR) confirmed the gun attack in the North Waziristan district. An ISPR statement said that terrorists from inside Afghanistan opened fire on a Pakistan post in Dewagar, North Waziristan district.
The army responded in a befitting manner and through an exchange of fireside, one soldier got injured.
The ISPR statement said Pakistan had consistently been requesting Afghanistan to make sure effective border management. “Pakistan strongly condemns the utilization of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan,” it added.
Meanwhile, two soldiers suffered injuries when a landmine exploded near their vehicle at Ladha, South Waziristan district.
Police said the explosion occurred within the Tangi Badanzai area. Officials said a little convoy was passing through a narrow pass when the landmine went off, leaving two soldiers wounded.
Security forces cordoned off the world and three suspects were arrested during an inquiry operation.
