7 Security Personnel Killed, 2 Injured in Militant Attacks in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa: At least seven security personnel lost their lives and two were injured in a series of militant attacks that rocked Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Sunday.

The attacks, which targeted security forces in North Waziristan district bordering Afghanistan, began with a blast from an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated by militants targeting a bomb disposal unit on Saturday evening. Local officials confirmed that five security personnel were killed and two injured in the initial explosion.

Following the blast, militants reportedly engaged in a gunfight with the security forces.

In a separate incident, militants attacked a security post in the Seeman area of the same district, killing two additional security personnel on Saturday.

Authorities responded immediately, airlifting the bodies of the deceased and the injured to the Combined Military Hospital in Bannu. Security forces also cordoned off the areas and launched search operations to apprehend the attackers.

These attacks come on the heels of another incident on May 8, where militants targeted a private girls’ school in North Waziristan’s Shewa tehsil. According to police reports, the militants tortured the school watchman before detonating explosives that destroyed two classrooms. Thankfully, no casualties were reported in the school attack.
