A Pakistani soldier was killed during an exchange of fire with militants in the South Waziristan district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Monday, officials said.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations, troops effectively engaged the militants’ location; however, during the exchange of fire, Lance Naik Mohammad Sabir, 30 years, was killed. 

“Armed Forces of Pakistan are determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism, and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve,” the statement added.

A day earlier, two Pakistani army personnel were killed while two militants were killed in gunfire in the tribal province of KP.

Recently, the TTP militants have intensified their attacks on Pakistani officials in several regions of Pakistan, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

On May 27, a motorcycle suicide bomber in Dera Ismail Khan’s Chehkan district targeted a convoy, inflicting at least 22 injuries on security officers.

Meanwhile, the government of Pakistan has said that it has committed to eliminating the militants from the country. As a result, at least four militants were killed in two separate incidents in KP last week.
