Frontier Corps (FC) Wednesday foiled an attack on a NATO supply terminal in the northwest, killing one attacker and forcing others to flee, officials said.
The attack was mounted in the Jamrud area of the Khyber tribal district that borders Afghanistan, said government official Ali Sher.
“The militants started firing on the terminal and tried to enter it,” Sher said, adding that the attack involved up to 12 people armed with automatic weapons and mortars.
“The FC retaliated and forced the militants to flee, leaving one dead body behind.”
An intelligence official in Jamrud confirmed the attack.
