The Pakistani military has announced that a soldier has been killed due to a conflict in the northwest region near the Afghanistan border.

Pakistani soldiers stated on Sunday that the altercation occurred in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, resulting in the death of one of their soldiers.

The Pakistani military has clarified that the Pakistani soldier lost his life in a clash with militants last night.

While the Pakistani military reports the death of a soldier, the closure of the Torkham border crossing and diplomatic efforts between the Islamic Emirate and Pakistan to reopen the border have been ongoing for six days.

The statement released by the Pakistani military mentions that North Waziristan has been a refuge for insurgents for several decades.

This comes after the Pakistani military announced that four soldiers were killed in a skirmish last Thursday in the Chitral region near the Afghan border.

Meanwhile, Pakistani officials have called upon the de facto administration in Afghanistan to address militant hideouts within their borders and prevent militants’ exploitation of Afghan territory.

Afghan officials have rejected these allegations in response, asserting their commitment to preventing any individual or group from using Afghanistan’s territory against its neighbouring countries.
