A soldier of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Frontier Corps embraced martyrdom while two others suffered injuries in an exchange of fire with terrorists in North Waziristan near Pak-Afghan border, the military's media wing said on Sunday.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), in retaliatory fire to the terror attack on a FC check-post two terrorists were killed.

The martyred soldier has been identified as Lance Naik Muhammad Imran.

"Terrorist fire raided [a] FC post in North Wazirstan Distt near Pak-Afg Border. During exchange of fire 2 terrorists killed. Lance Naik Muhammad Imran of FC KP embraced shahadat [martyrdom] while 2 FC soldiers got injured," said Director General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor in a tweet.

The area is one the seven tribal districts in erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) – Bajaur, Khyber, Kurram, Mohmand, North Waziristan, Orakzai and South Waziristan – before its merger with K-P.

North Waziristan – once a focal point in the global war on terror – held provincial elections for the first time in July this year, a key step in bringing the region into the political mainstream after years of turmoil fuelled by terrorism.
