The ISPR also stated that a sanitization operation is underway to eliminate any remaining terrorists in the area.

“Pakistan’s security forces remain dedicated to rooting out terrorism from the country, and the sacrifices of our brave soldiers only strengthen our determination,” the ISPR emphasized.

This incident occurred shortly after another tragic event where a Pakistan Army captain lost his life in a gunfight with terrorists in North Waziristan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Captain Muhammad Osama bin Arshad, aged 24, from Rawalpindi district, was martyred while defending the nation.

According to the ISPR, two terrorists were killed as security forces targeted their location effectively during the fierce encounter.
