On night 26-27 October 2021, terrorists from inside Afghanistan attempted to cross the fence along Pak - Afghan border in district Kurram. Troops initiated a prompt response and thwarted the attempted illegal crossing by engaging the terrorists.
However, during intense fire exchange, Lance Naik Asad, resident of Kurram, age 24 years & Sepoy Asif, resident of Lakki Marwat, age 21 years embraced martydom.
Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan and expects that interim Afghan Government will not allow such activities against Pakistan.
In future, Pak Army is determined to guard Pakistan's frontiers against the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve.
