RAWALPINDI    -   A soldier embraced mar­tyrdom when terrorists from inside Afghanistan across the international border, opened fire on Pakistani troops in Kharlachi are of Kurram Dis­trict. According to ISPR, Pa­kistani troops responded in a befitting manner and ter­rorists suffered heavy casu­alties. However, during the fire exchange, Sepoy Jamshed Iqbal having fought gallantly, laid down his life in defence of the motherland. Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan and expects that the interim Afghan Government will not allow conduct of such activi­ties, in future. Pakistan Army is determined to defend Pa­kistan’s borders against the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve.
