Authorities reported that three security personnel and one citizen were killed after a suicide blast occurred at a checkpoint in the North Waziristan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the authorities said that two security officials, a policeman and one civilian, were killed. In contrast, one security personnel and a cop were injured in the attack, deputy Commissioner Rehan Gul Khattak said.
The injured people were transferred to a nearby hospital in the area.
This is the second attack by the militants in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan within two days.
A day earlier, militants attacked the province’s natural gas and oil Production companies, killing at least six people, including four security forces and two private guards.
The police said that at least 50 militants attacked the site, killing four police officers and two private security guards of the company.
The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack.
The TTP militants have intensified their attacks targeting security forces and officers since the ending of a unilateral ceasefire with the government of Pakistan.
