A soldier of the border security force was martyred in a cowardly attack on a patrolling party by a group of terrorists in Panjgur, Balochistan, an area along the Pakistan-Iran border, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Monday.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the martyred soldier, Sepoy Jalil Khan, who was a resident of Dera Ismail Khan, fought valiantly during a heavy exchange of fire between the two parties.

"Pakistan’s security forces remain determined to defeat such acts of inimical elements, aimed at disrupting peace, stability, and progress of Balochistan," the ISPR said.
