Martyrs of Mir Ali attack laid to rest with full military honours


(Web Desk) – The seven soldiers and officers of the Pakistan army, who embraced martyrdom in a terrorist attack in Mir Ali area of North Waziristan on Saturday, were laid to rest in their respective native towns with full military honours on Sunday, Radio Pakistan has reported.

The martyrs included Lt-Col Syed Kashif Ali (a resident of Karachi), Capt Muhammad Ahmad Badar (a resident of Talagang), Havaldar Sabir (a resident of Khyber), Naik Khurshid (a resident of Lakki Marwat), Sepoy Nasir (a resident of Peshawar), Sepoy Raja (a resident of Kohat), and Sepoy Sajid (a resident of Abbottabad).

A significant number of individuals attended their burial prayers, including the martyrs’ families, relatives, Pakistani army officers, and local elders.

On Saturday, at least six terrorists crashed an explosive-laden truck into a security checkpoint in the Mir Ali region, killing Havaldar Sabir, Naik Khurshid, Sepoy Nasir, Sepoy Raja, and Sepoy Sajid.

The original infiltration attempt was successfully repelled by the security forces.

During the clearance operation, Lt. Col Kashif Ali killed all six terrorists. However, both Lt-Col Kashif Ali and Capt Muhammad Ahmed Badar embraced martyrdom during the furious exchange of fire with the attackers.
