An exchange of fire between the troops and the terrorists took place in the Sararogar area of the South Waziristan district of the province, the media wing of the Armed Forces Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
“Own troops effectively attacked the location of the terrorist. During an intense exchange of fire, a 39-year-old soldier lost his life,” the ISPR said.
The Pakistani army is determined to eliminate the threat of terrorism and “such sacrifices by our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” the army said. ■
