Seven Pakistani soldiers and five terrorists were killed in a gun battle in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Pakistan, which borders Afghanistan on Wednesday, according to the military. Based on the tip-off, soldiers began cordon and search operations in the tribal district of South Waziristan near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. The fire exchange began near the private land where seven soldiers were killed. According to a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations Office (ISPR), the military has neutralized all five hidden militants.

KPK Prime Minister Mehmud Khan expressed sadness to the murdered soldiers. He said the entire country was behind the army in the war on terrorism. Terrorist attacks are increasing in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as the Taliban dominate neighboring Afghanistan. In July, a terrorist attack on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa killed at least 13 people, including nine Chinese. A bus carrying Chinese engineers and workers to the site of Das Dam under construction exploded on July 14. The bus fell into a deep valley after an explosion in northern Kohistani.
