Five soldiers were martyred on Friday in a terrorist attack in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Kurram district, the military’s media wing said.

In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations said that an improvised explosive device exploded on the security forces vehicle in the district’s general area Sadda.

The martyrs of the attack include Havildar Aqeel Ahmed, 33, a Okara resident; Lance Naik Muhammad Tafeer, 30, a Poonch resident, Sepoy Anosh Rufun, 24, an Attock resident, Sepoy Muhammad Azam Khan, 26, a Haripur resident; and Sepoy Haroon William, 29, an Islamabad Capital Territory resident.

Sanitization of the area was being carried out to eliminate any terrorists present in the area and perpetrators of the heinous act would be brought to justice, the ISPR said.

“Security forces of Pakistan are determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” it said.

Earlier this month, seven soldiers, including a captain, were martyred when an improvised explosive device exploded on the security forces vehicle in KP’s Lakki Marwat district.
