KABUL - A top commander of the Afghan border protection police forces in the East has rejected reports suggesting that the Pakistani forces have violated the Durand Line.

The commander of the 1st Brigade of the border protection police forces Gen. Mohammad Ayoub Hussain Khel said no Pakistani soldier has moved inside the Afghan soil.

Speaking to reporters in Nangarhar, Gen. Hussain Khel said the border protection forces are on alert.

He said the rocket and artillery shelling are done from the other side of the Durand by the military circles.
