Nation stands side by side with armed forces: Shibli Faraz

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Senator Shibli Faraz has said that the nation stands side by side with the Armed Forces in the war against terror.

On a social media website Twitter, the minister strongly condemned the attack on security forces in North Waziristan.

He paid rich tributes to martyrs Lieutenant Nasir Hussain Khalid, Naik Muhammad Imran and Sepoy Usman Akhtar. He prayed for high ranks in Jannah for the departed souls.

On Thursday, an improvised explosive device (IED) planted by terrorists martyred three soldiers and injured four others in North Waziristan’s Ghariom sector.

In its statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the soldiers were providing protection to construction teams working in the area when the bomb went off.

Lt Nasir Khalid was a graduate of Royal Military Academy Australia. His father was also a martyred police officer. The mother of the lieutenant is alone after losing her only son.

Earlier on August 31, four soldiers were martyred and another four wounded in an ambush in the Ladha area of South Waziristan. South Waziristan had served as a militant base until recent years.
