A Pakistani peacekeeper was martyred when militants ambushed a convoy of Pakistani Peacekeepers in Abyei (disputed area between Sudan and South Sudan), the Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement on Monday.

“Pakistani peacekeepers responded effectively and forced the militants to retreat. However, during exchange of fire, Sepoy Muhammad Tariq (resident of Badin, Sindh) embraced martyrdom while four individuals including two officers were injured,” it added.

The convoy was escorting two local patients to a hospital.

According to ISPR, Pakistan’s peacekeeping contingents have always distinguished themselves by virtue of their professionalism and devotion to duty.

As many as 181 Pakistani peacekeepers have laid their lives while serving the cause of peace around the world.

Pakistan remains committed to its role as a responsible member of the international community and will continue to contribute towards global peace and stability under the auspices of the United Nations, the ISPR stated.
