A soldier and two civilians were martyred in a suicide blast in North Waziristan district’s Miranshah on Monday, the military’s media wing said.

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

The ISPR added that one civilian was injured in the incident too.

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.

On Dec 5, at least five terrorists were killed and a soldier was martyred during an intelligence-based operation in Jhallar Algad area of North Waziristan.
