MIRAMSHAH: Two soldiers were martyred in a rocket attack on a security checkpoint in North Waziristan tribal district late on Wednesday night.

The martyred soldiers were identified as Hawaldar Zafar and Sepoy Asif.

The rocket, fired from an unknown direction, slammed into the checkpoint in Edek village, near Mirali town, around midnight.

Ten security personnel were martyred in attacks by militants in North Waziristan district last month while six suffered injuries.

In another incident, unknown attackers killed a person in Tapi, a village near Miramshah, on Wednesday night. According to police, Doctor Khan, 45, was going home when armed men opened fire at him. He died on the spot.

Police said the incident was apparently a case of targeted killing.

Two people were shot dead in the same village on Tuesday night while three others were killed in Shewa, near Mirali.
