At least two security personnel were martyred and as many terrorists killed during a fire exchange in Lakki Marwat district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Wednesday, Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement.

The security forces effectively engaged the terrorists’ location as a result of which two terrorists were killed while weapons, ammunition and explosives were also recovered from them, it added.

“However, during intense exchange of fire, two brave soldiers; Sepoy Muhammad Afzal (age 29 years; resident of district Bhimber, Azad Kashmir) and Sepoy Ibrar Hussain (age 27 years; resident of district Mansehra), having fought gallantly, embraced Shahadat,” the ISPR stated.

According to ISPR, the killed terrorists, identified as Aftab alias Malang and Masood Shah, remained actively involved in numerous terrorist activities against the security forces as well as target killings of innocent civilians.
