Peshawar: Three Pakistani security personnel were killed in an IED explosion in Tehsil, Ghulam Khan of North Waziristan, security officials said on Sunday.
The bomb attack took place near a basic health care unit in Algad area, a senior administration official told The Express Tribune.
The men were part of the bomb disposal unit clearing the area.
This is the seventh terrorist incident in the agency in the past two months.
Three Pakistani FC personnel were killed and five terrorists were killed in a cross-border attack from Afghanistan on Friday on an under-construction post in Mohmand Agency, the Pakistan army’s media wing said in a statement.
ISPR said, “These officials were busy in construction of the new border post in Shonkrai near Pak-Afghan border in Mohmand Agency [when they came under attack].”
Last month, two FC soldiers were killed and four sustained serious wounds when their vehicle hit a landmine in District Sibi of restive Balochistan.
