A terrorist attack on the Pak-Afghan border has left four Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers martyred while six others injured.

The terrorists ambushed them during a fencing activity at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, on Wednesday, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations ISPR.

The military’s media wing said in a statement on Wednesday said that that the troops were moving for fencing activity along the border in the Manzakai sector in Zhob, Balochistan.

At that time, the terrorists from Afghanistan opened fire at the FC personnel. 

FC troops responded to the attack promptly, it said.

The martyred soldiers include Havaldar Noor Zaman, Sepoy Shakeel Abbas, Sepoy Ehsan Ullah, and Naik Sultan.

The injured soldiers were shifted to the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Quetta for treatment, the ISPR added.

On the other hand, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid has condemned the attack, terming it “very saddening”.

“Terrorists cannot dampen the courage of Pakistan’s forces. Fencing work at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border will be completed under any condition,” he said in a tweet.
