Six terrorists killed in cross border attacks on Pakistan military check posts from Afghanistan
ISLAMABAD - Four FC soldiers and one PAF soldier were injured in cross-border terrorist attacks from Afghanistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement.
Security forces responded effectively and repulsed physical attacks, as a result of which six terrorists were killed and several injured.
Terrorists from across the border carried fire raids and physical attacks on Pakistan’s border posts and border fencing parties in Bajaur in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Qamar Din Qarez in Balochistan.
Taking advantage of ungoverned spaces and facilitation inside Afghanistan, terrorists are resorting to such attacks to prevent fencing and construction of border posts, the ISPR said.
Fencing of Pak-Afghan border and construction of border forts will continue irrespective of the challenges posed by inimical forces, and in order to consolidate the gains of successful kinetic operations against terrorism, the ISPR statement added.
