2 martyred, 3 injured as security force vehicle comes under attack in North Waziristan
[DAWN] Two men belonging to the security forces bit the dust while three others were maimed on Wednesday when their vehicle was targeted in Mir Ali tehsil of North Wazoo.
According to sources, the three injured men have been transferred to a Combined Military Hospital (CHM) nearby.
The political administration of the area claimed that Lions of Islam fired rockets on a vehicle carrying members of the security forces in Edak area of Mir Ali tehsil.
The area where the attack occurred has been sealed and a search operation for the arrest of the perpetrators of the attack is underway.
The uptick in attacks targeting security forces raises questions over the efficacy of counter-terror operations in different parts of the country, including North Waziristan where the army was said to have cleared the area of the presence of Lions of Islam under Operation Zarb-e-Azb
