At least five Pakistani army forces and a child were injured in a roadside bomb explosion that took place in the Khadi area of North Waziristan on Tuesday, police said.

According to local sources, the Pakistani army and security forces have surrounded the area and are searching for the attackers.

The army has not yet commented about the terror incident, however, police has said to local media that the attack targeted a military vehicle while patrolling the area.  

The victims of the incident have been moved to Mir Ali Hospital, a tribal area close to the Afghanistan border where the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has significant influence.

Pakistani security forces have been persistently targeted by insurgent groups in Mir Ali and Miran Shah regions. It is reported that lately, the militant fighters have launched attacks against the country’s security forces using sophisticated weapons.

Since the outlawed TTP ended its unilateral ceasefire with the Pakistani government in November last year, the militant group has intensified its attacks across Pakistan, resulting in the death and injury of scores of civilians and military personnel.

Though a separate group, the TTP remains a close ally to the Taliban, which took over Afghanistan in August 2021 following the withdrawal of US and NATO forces from the country after two decades of war.

Security remains a major challenge for the coalition government as Pakistan is already grappling with economic crises and political issues.
