The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Monday a soldier was martyred after terrorists opened fire on a military post in Ghariom, North Waziristan. 

The military's media wing, in a statement, said the troops had responded in a befitting manner, while sanitisation of the area was being carried out to eliminate any terrorists, 

During the exchange of fire, Naik Ghulam Mustafa, 37, resident of Muzaffarabad had embraced martyrdom, the military's media wing added.

The funeral prayers of the martyred soldier were offered at his native town Duna Chatter in Muzaffarabad, according to a statement from ISPR later in the day.

The statement mentioned a large crowd attended his funeral prayers, while the slain soldier buried "with full military honour".
