Officials said that two soldiers in a small convoy were injured when a landmine exploded near their vehicle at Ladha.

Three soldiers have been woun­ded in a landmine explosion and firing from across the Afghan border in South Waziristan and North Waziristan tribal districts on Sunday, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) confirmed.

In a statement, ISPR said that the terrorists from inside Afghanistan opened fire on a Pakistan military post in Dewagar, North Waziristan district.

The army responded in a befitting manner and one soldier was wounded during the exchange of fire.

The ISPR statement said Pakistan had consistently been requesting Afgha­nistan to ensure effective border management. “Pak­istan strongly condemns the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan,” it added.

Elsewhere, two soldiers suffered injuries when a landmine exploded near their vehicle at Ladha, South Waziristan district.

Officials said a small convoy was passing through a narrow pass when the landmine went off, leaving two soldiers wounded.

Security forces cordoned off the area and three suspects were arrested during a search operation.
