The Namaz-e-Janaza of Shaheed Major Ali Jawad was offered at Peshawar Garrison on Tuesday.

Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, Corps Commander Lt. Gen. Hidayat-ur-Rehman, family members and relatives of the martyred Major Jawad and military officials attended the Namaz-e-Janaza.

Major Ali Jawad sustained injuries in unprovoked firing by Afghan forces in Torkham on Monday and later succumbed to his injuries.

The body of the Shaheed Major will be taken to his home town Quetta for burial with full military honour.

In their separate condolence messages, President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif have expressed sympathies with the bereaved family of Major Ali Jawad Shaheed.

The two leaders paid tributes to the shaheed for sacrificing life for the country.

The Prime Minister said Ali Jawad Shaheed became a victim of Afghan forces' aggression while guarding the motherland.
