At least 29 people, including an army officer, were martyred following a brazen assault on Pakistan Air Force Camp in the Badaber place in Peshawar early Friday morning, in accordance with the security officials.
The casualties comprise 16 worshipers who have been targeted during Fajr prayers inside the Badaber base camp in a mosque at 6am.
“Terrorists entered camp at 2 points and additional schism in sub groups. Encounter started promptly as a result of rapid answer and they were included within a close place.
But, the absolute amount of fatal accidents is 29.
Captain Asfandyar Bukhari was martyred as clearance was in the camp found on Air Force Road near tribal region, while ten military guys, including two senior officers, were injured in the assault, Bajwa included.
“Capt Asfandyar adopted shahadat while fighting valiantly and directing his troops in the front,” Bajwa said.
Nevertheless, heavy contingent of Quick Response Force (QRF) ran to the site and confined the terrorists to the guardroom.
The security forces aborted their effort to wreak havoc in the base and have restricted the motion of the attackers.
