Three soldiers injured in blast, fires from across Afghan boundary


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.
