TEHRAN, December 12 - Two Pakistani soldiers have been killed in an attack by militants on an army vehicle on patrol in a troubled mountainous region in Pakistan’s northwest.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Pakistan’s army said in a statement on Tuesday that the attack took place in the North Waziristan tribal region near the Afghan border.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

On November 30, a roadside bomb claimed the lives of at least five anti-Taliban voluntary forces and wounded two others in South Waziristan’s Spinkai area near the Afghan border. The casualties were caused after the vehicle of a group of the voluntary forces was attacked using a remotely-detonated bomb. A faction of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.

Thousands of Pakistanis have lost their lives in bombings and other militant attacks since 2001, when Pakistan entered into an alliance with the United States in Washington’s so-called war on terror.

Thousands more have been displaced by the wave of violence and militancy sweeping the country.
