Peshawar. At least three Pakistani soldiers were killed in an encounter with terrorists in Pakistan’s restive Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. This information was given in an army statement. According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the Pakistan Army, an encounter broke out between Pakistani troops and terrorists in Kurram district of the province, in which two terrorists were also killed. These soldiers have been identified as Subedar Shuja Muhammad (43), Khuzdar Naik Muhammad Ramzan (32) and Sukkur Sepoy Abdul Rehman (30).

The statement said the encounter broke out when troops from both sides raided a hideout in a former militant stronghold near the Afghan border. The statement said the raid was carried out to eliminate terrorists from the area. According to the statement, “Pakistan Army is committed to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve.”

The incident comes amid a surge in terrorist attacks across the country, with most of the incidents claimed by the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Last week, a Pakistani Taliban fighter detonated a car bomb in Islamabad and was from Kurram. The attack was claimed by the TTP, considered close to Al Qaeda, which has been reactivated since the capture of Kabul by the Afghan Taliban.
