RAWALPINDI, Sep 20 (APP): A Pakistan Army soldier has embraced martyrdom while thwarting a terrorist attack from Afghanistan in bordering Dwatoi area of North Waziristan district.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), on September 19, the terrorists from inside Afghanistan opened fire on the Pakistani troops in general area Dwatoi, which was responded in a befitting manner.

As per credible intelligence reports, the terrorists suffered heavy casualties.
