A Pakistan Army soldier embraced martyrdom in an attack over checkpost along the Pakistan-Iran border on Tuesday.  

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), a group of terrorists, in a cowardly attack, targeted a Pakistani check post along Pak-Iran border in Abdoi sector, Balochistan.

The army’s media wing said that during a heavy exchange of fire, Lance Naek Zaheer Ahmed, a resident of Noshki, embraced martyrdom while fighting valiantly.

Security forces responded to the attack in a befitting manner and forced the terrorists to run away. The ISPR said that terrorists are trying to sabotage peace in Balochistan and added that security forces will foil heinous designs of the enemies of Pakistan.

According to the ISPR, based on intelligence about the presence of externally supported terrorists in the surroundings of Turbat, security forces conducted an operation in Hoshab area.
