MIRANSHAH, Pakistan A suicide bomber rammed a water tanker into a Pakistani check post late Saturday, killing 17 soldiers in the notorious tribal district of North Waziristan, the military said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. North Waziristan is perhaps the most notorious of Pakistan's tribal districts on the Afghan border, a known stronghold of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked operatives.
The deaths were a reminder of the serious security threat in Pakistan, just hours before former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was due to return home to the southern city of Karachi after more than four years in exile.
"In last night's attack on a security forces' checkpost in North Waziristan, 17 security forces personnel embraced shahadat (martyrdom)," the military said.
Security officials explained the sudden increase in the death toll after it jumped from six by saying that many of the dead had been trapped under the rubble following the blast.
Another 10 soldiers were also wounded in the attack on a check post operated jointly by the regular army and the Frontier Corps paramilitary.
Pakistani troops have fought for years against homegrown insurgents in the tribal belt on the Afghan border.
There are fears that rampant insecurity could prove a major challenge for historic general elections on May 11, which should mark the first democratic transition of power between two civilian governments in Pakistani history. AFP
Saudi Gazette - Suicide attack kills 17 Pakistan soldiers: military
17...that is a huge number.....
Indeed.Looks like Taliban has ordered it's troops to attack Pakistani Soldiers in NWA again. @Kazhugu,it's 22 now.This is the most deadly attack on Pakistani Soldiers so far in 2013.
RIP to our brave soldiers who sacrifice in these unfortunate times!
Rest In Peace....
Hmm...last week attack on Indian jawans and this week attack on pak jawans!!? Something going on maybe?
and they make issue of border killing while dozens of them are being killed by their own citizens.
If PA cant protect their soldiers,its better to pull out than let them die like this.
More soldiers die n tribal areas than terrorists....
The Brits left them alone...even Changez khan left those tribals alone,why cant Pakistan just leave them alone?
Is it worth it to try this hard to keep people with such violent mentality?
Tribal mind just thinks of vengence...
You never know which one of them will make it the purpose of their sad life to kill you,just because you looked at his woman froma distance or entered his village without permission.
So many sacrifices may have been worth it if the area was of any use..
But all they got is dry mountains and unruly murderous tribes...
PA should change strategy,pull out,let the tribals have their love story with Afghanistan or drones,and PA should keep the border between tribal areas and civilized Pakistan secure....
Its normal for a tribal to threaten you of murder with bullet,on trivial things,and they kill on simple arguments....and brag about it.
The last time i had an argument with a 'koki khel',the conversation ended up with him threatening me ''Hum tou goulii sey baat khertha haiy'',and i realized i am talking to a useless brute,and better keep away.
That way resources will be saved and lives of soldiers,and all the garbage will remain in tribal areas than coming into and polluting the rest of the country.
Members here were saying that TTP is proposing talks because they are weakened by PA, but they are wrong.
What good is the army if it cant even control it's own territory. Pull out and do what? You keep pulling out and the hostile territory keeps increasing. The only solution pak now has is to take on the terrorists head on wipe them off like sri lanka did. Stop using terrorists for having strategic depth as it only comes back to haunt you. "Good" taliban, "bad" taliban, LeT, "non-state actors" etc all will at one point will bite the hand which fed them. The sooner pak realises this, the better it would be for the region.
Its not just that koki khel, i am also sick of your hateful ranting and want to put a bullet into your head to silence you.
The proof is in the pudding..
Seriously for how long are we going to loose our people in the hands of these bastard$.
RIP brave soldiers.
