In exchange of fire three individuals who attacked the post lost their lives and 10 got injured.

"All injured were taken to the army hospital for treatment".

On May 6, a first information report (FIR) had been registered against members of the PTM central committee including MNA Ali Wazir in North Waziristan for inciting people to revolt against the state.

On May 24 last, there was a clearance operation in general area Doga, northeast of Maidan as rear area sanitisation.

Director General of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Sunday that no one would be allowed to undo the gains of decades' long national struggle and sacrifices, especially of courageous Pakistani tribals. Troops deployed on one of the blocking positions received fire from Doga village and a soldier received a bullet injury in his belly.

Maj-Gen Asif Ghafoor says only a few inciting innocent PTM supporters against state institutions.

The PTM, whose support base is mostly among the Pashtun ethnic minority, has been peaceful since its founding in early 2018. "Troops at the check post exercised maximum restraint in the face of provocation and direct firing on the post", said the Pakistan Army's media wing. Following the incident, two suspects were taken into custody on May 25.

As per details, the troops effectively repulsed the attempt of the terrorists.

At least five soldiers were injured after a PTM mob, led by national assembly members Ali Wazir and Mohsin Javed (Dawar) allegedly attacked an army checkpost in Boyya.

"Some of the people have become agents of the foreign forces".

Pakistan's impoverished tribal areas became a front line in the battle against extremist groups after the US -led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, when the Afghan Taliban and Al-Qaeda took refuge in the region.

The incident follows months of rising tensions between the two sides, with the military publicly warning PTM leaders repeatedly to end the group's vocal criticism of the country's armed forces.

What exactly led to the confrontation remains murky, with the military saying the activists assaulted the checkpoint, while PTM leader Dawar has alleged security forces fired directly into their group after they passed the checkpoint.
