During an exchange of fire with terrorists in the South Waziristan tribal district’s Shakai area last night, an officer of the Pakistan Army, Captain Abdullah Shah embraced martyrdom on Monday.
On the intelligence of terrorists’ presence in Shakai, South Waziristan, security forces were conducting night patrolling. They wanted to check terrorists move in the Shakai area, said an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a press release on Monday. During one such late-night patrol on Sunday, the terrorists opened fire on the patrolling party, according to the sources.
Captain Abdullah Shah, a 25-year-old resident of Lachi, Kohat, embraced martyrdom when terrorists fired on his patrolling party that night. Moreover, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) further added that Captain Abdullah was leading the troops.
In addition to this, the statement further read that the troops cordoned off the area for a clearance operation following the incident. On Sunday night, the Pakistan Army lost another precious gem. Yet another valuable life has been sacrificed on the bloodthirsty altar of terrorism.
Besides this, the police said that the gun battle took place near Shrongai check-post at around 11 pm on Sunday. Moreover, they believe that the attackers used a sniper gun during the exchange. They reportedly flew the body to Kohat.
Additionally, the officials said that terrorists had carried out two attacks against security forces in the area recently. According to the details, it resulted in the martyrdom of three soldiers and injuries to five others.
Netizens pay respect and tribute to the brave-hearted soldier
Social media users took it to Twitter to pay tribute to the young departed soul. Hats off to Captain Abdullah who unwaveringly stood tall to protect his motherland and its people. To the young hero who did not hesitate to give up on his today, only for our tomorrow.
Furthermore, it is to be noted that the challenges faced by the Pakistan armed forces are no secret. Earlier this month, two other army soldiers also embraced martyrdom in exchange of fire with terrorists. It took place during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Spalga, Miranshah, and North Waziristan – tribal districts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
These brave, tough, and resilient men leave everything behind to protect the sovereignty of the country – their families, lives, dreams. Above all, the only thing that matters to them is saving the people of Pakistan. Moreover, it goes without saying that the Pakistan Army deserves all our love and respect!
We wish the highest rank in Jannah for Shaheed Captain Abdullah. Without any shadow of a doubt, the whole nation will always be indebted to your blood and sacrifice. Salutes to you, Captain.
