A Pakistan Army soldier was martyred and another was injured on the Pak-Afghan border after terrorists attacked a post in the Bajaur sector, said a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Wednesday.

Terrorists fired from across on a Pakistan Army post along the Pak- Afghan Border in Bajaur, the military’s media wing tweeted. “Resultantly, Havaldar Tanveer embraced Shahadat while one soldier got injured,” it further maintained.



On September 22, a post, also located in the Bajaur sector of the international border, came under fire from Afghan territory, resulting in the martyrdom of Sepoy Sabir Shah.

The military's media wing added that Islamabad has consistently been raising the issue for border management with Kabul to avoid the use of Afghan soil for attacks against Pakistan.

Earlier, the army said that the unfortunate rise in violent incidents on both sides of Pak-Afghan border is meant to "derail Afghanistan peace process".

"Pakistan earnestly believes that both countries deserve peace and progress. Together we will defeat all spoilers," Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Babar Iftikhar had said in a tweet.

In August, a Frontier Corps (FC) soldier was martyred while two others sustained injuries due to firing from across the Afghan border.

The military's media wing had said that mortar and heavy weapons were used during the firing in Bin Shahi area of Dir district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P).
