RAWALPINDI: Security forces killed seven terrorists trying to infiltrate the Pakistan-Afghan border in general area Spinkai, Ghulam Khan, North Waziristan district.

Movement of a group of seven terrorists, trying to infiltrate the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, was detected by security forces in general area Spinkai, Ghulam Khan, North Waziristan district, on Tuesday, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

It said the infiltrators were surrounded, effectively engaged and after an intense fire exchange, all seven terrorists were sent to hell. A large quantity of weapons, ammunition and explosives was also recovered from the killed terrorists.

The ISPR said Pakistan has consistently been asking the interim Afghan government to ensure effective border management on their side of the border. The interim Afghan government is expected to fulfill its obligations and prevent the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for perpetuating acts of terrorism against Pakistan. “The security forces of Pakistan are committed to securing its borders and eliminating the menace of terrorism from the country,” the ISPR said.
