KABUL - At least twenty eight rounds of the artillery landed in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan in the latest wave of shelling from the other side of the Durand Line, Khaama press has reported.

The provincial government in Nangarhar in a statement said the shells landed in Nazian district of Nangarhar.

The statement further added that the shelling started at around 11 am local time and continued until 4 pm.

This comes as more than 80 artillery shells were fired on Nangarhar province last week.

According to the local officials, the shelling took place on Nazian and Achin districts of the province but no casualties were incurred to the residents.

The Pakistani officials are claiming that the majority of the attacks on their security posts take place from the Afghan soil.

The Pakistani military said last week that a soldier was killed and another was wounded after militants opened fire on their check post in Khyber Agency located in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of the country.
