Terrorists from Afghanistan attacked Pakistan Army troops undertaking fencing efforts along the Pak-Afghan border in Alwara, North Waziristan.

 

Terrorists operating “from bases in Afghanistan” attacked Pakistani soldiers engaged in fencing operations along the border in Alwara, North Waziristan, ISPR reported.

The soldiers who embraced martyrdom were identified as Sepoy Imdadullah, Lance Naik Ali and Lance Naik Nazeer.

ISPR read the statement, “While Pakistan security forces are solidifying border security through fencing and construction of forts to deny liberty of action to the terrorists, Afghan security forces and authorities need to have more effective control in border region to support Pakistan’s efforts, as well as deny use of Afghan soil against Pakistan”

In April, Government has set defense budget of Rs43.7 billion funds to counter threats of terrorism in the next fiscal year 2019-20.

Director General ISPR Major Gen Asif Ghafoor had disclosed that fencing over a distance of 1,000km on the borders of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan with Afghanistan has been completed and work on the rest is in process.
