A suicide bomber met his demise during a failed attack in Tehsil Landi Kotal of Khyber District. Security sources report that the lifeless body of an unidentified assailant remains at the site of the incident in Sultan Khel, which was the intended target of the explosion occurring at 2 a.m. the previous night.
Sources reveal that an alleged suicide bomber triggered a hand grenade explosion while attempting to detonate a jacket. The attacker lost his life when the hand grenade prematurely exploded.
Astonishingly, the assailant’s limbs remained intact, as the jacket failed to detonate as intended. Subsequently, law enforcement agencies heightened security measures in the area and initiated an investigation.
It’s important to note that terrorist activities have recently been rising in Khyber District. In August, security forces conducted an operation, that resulted in the elimination of two terrorists. Prior to that, two suicide attacks occurred in the Bara compound, claiming the lives of 5 personnel and injuring 7 others.
On July 25, another suicide attack took place in Ali Masjid, resulting in the tragic demise of Additional SHO Adnan Afridi.
