Ten Killed in Afghanistan-Pakistan Border Clashes

Ten Killed in Afghanistan-Pakistan Border Clashes

Pakistani troops

At least eight terrorists have been shot dead and two Pakistani soldiers killed in a skirmish along the restive border with Afghanistan, the Pakistani army says.

Alwaght- At least eight militants have been shot dead and two Pakistani soldiers killed in a skirmish along the restive border with Afghanistan, the Pakistani army says.

The military said in a statement on Monday that fierce clashes took place along the border in Bajaur in the tribal districts of northwest Pakistan.

"Terrorists from Afghanistan side attempted attack on Pakistani posts" along the border, the military said, adding that 8-10 of the attackers were killed.

"Captain Junaid Hafeez and Sepoy Raham embraced shahdat (martyrdom) while four soldiers sustained injuries," added the statement.

The statement, however, did not specify when the incident happened but a security official said it was on Monday.

Elsewhere in the statement, the military said that Afghanistan's failure to control its side of the border made it easy for "terrorists" to launch such raids.

Pakistan and Afghanistan regularly accuse each other of offering militants and terrorists safe havens along the border between the two countries. Both sides, however, deny the allegation.

Earlier this month, during a Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs briefing, Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua maintained that terror groups are not functioning in Pakistan, but operating from across the Pak-Afghan border.

"In Afghanistan, 45 per cent of the country is not under government control, which is why the Haqqani network and other terror groups do not need a safe haven in Pakistan," she said, repeating the state's new refrain on cross-border terrorism.
