A press release from the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) identified the soldier as 33-year-old Naik Abid from Mansehra.

Today’s incident comes five days after a soldier and a civilian were martyred in a suicide blast in Miranshah on Wednesday.

The deceased soldier was identified as 30-year-old Havaldar Muhammad Ameer. Moreover, nine civilians were injured as well, the ISPR had said.
