SOUTH WAZIRISTAN: Three soldiers were martyred and four others got bullet injuries when militants attacked a patrolling party in South Waziristan tribal district on Sunday, Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement.

Local officials said that troops were patrolling a hilly area in the Kazkai region of Ladha tehsil when terrorists opened fire at them.

ISPR confirmed martyrdom of three soldiers and injuries to four others. The martyred personnel were identified as Subedar Nadeem, Lance Naik Musawar and Sepoy Saleem.

Officials said the injured soldiers included Subhan, Amanullah and Qamar. They were taken to a local hospital. Security forces conducted a search operation but no arrest was made.

South Waziristan has witnessed a spike in attacks on security forces like the adjacent North Waziristan tribal district. Recently, a senior officer and three soldiers were wounded when a suicide bomber blew himself up near a military vehicle in South Waziristan.
