2 soldiers killed, 15 injured in suicide attack in Pakistan

Two soldiers were killed and 15 others injured in a suicide attack in Pakistan’s northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Thursday. The incident took place in Dera Ismail Khan district when unknown militants opened fire at a convoy of security forces, leading to the death of two soldiers including a military driver.

According to sources from the Counter Terrorism Department, the firing was followed by the suicide attack. The area has been cordoned off for investigations as no group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

The incident highlights the ongoing security challenges faced by Pakistan, particularly in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region. The loss of lives in such attacks underscores the need for continued efforts to combat terrorism and maintain peace in the area.
