7 terrorists killed amid attempt to infiltrate Pak-Afghan Border

Additionally, a significant cache of weapons, ammunition, and explosives was seized from the deceased terrorists.

The military announced on Tuesday that security forces successfully thwarted an attempt by at least seven terrorists to breach the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in North Waziristan district, resulting in the elimination of all seven insurgents. According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the movement of the terrorist group was detected on April 16, 2024, in the Spinkai area of Ghulam Khan, North Waziristan District.

Following the detection, the infiltrators were encircled by security forces and engaged effectively, leading to a fierce exchange of fire and the subsequent neutralization of all seven terrorists. Additionally, a significant cache of weapons, ammunition, and explosives was seized from the deceased terrorists.

The ISPR emphasized Pakistan’s consistent calls to the interim Afghan government to ensure robust border management on their side to prevent the exploitation of Afghan territory by terrorists targeting Pakistan. The statement underscored the expectation for the Afghan government to fulfill its obligations in this regard.

Furthermore, the ISPR reiterated the unwavering determination of Pakistan’s security forces to safeguard its borders and eradicate the scourge of terrorism from the nation. This commitment comes in the wake of recent clashes along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, which resulted in casualties on both sides.
