Multiple explosions in different parts of North Waziristan left 29 security officials injured on Tuesday.
An official of the security forces told The Express Tribune that an improvised explosive device (IED) planted by militants was defused by security forces at a roadside on Bannu Razmak Road in the Damadel area early morning before the armed forces’ convoy drove past the area at around 10am.
Similarly, in a second incident, two security officials were injured in a roadside blast when the convoy was moving from headquarters in Miramshah to Bannu.
Another vehicle carrying security officials from Bannu to Razmak was hit by an IED in the Pir Kallay area of Razmak tehsil. In the fourth incident, an explosion of a similar nature injured two officials of the Tochi Scouts.
Four of the injured are said to be in a critical state.
