According to the statement by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), terrorists from inside Afghanistan attempted to enter Pakistan at late night on October 26.

The soldiers who were martyred in the attack included 24-year-old Lance Naik Asad, a resident of Kurram, and 21-year-old Sepoy Asif, a resident of Lakki Marwat.

The ISPR stated that “Pakistan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan and expects that [the] interim Afghan government will not allow such activities against Pakistan in [the] future.”

The statement added that the Pakistan Army is determined to protect the country’s frontiers against terrorism.

“Sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” the statement concluded.
