Two FC soldiers martyred in attack at Afghanistan border

Two FC soldiers martyred in attack at Afghanistan border

According to the ISPR, the military's media wing, the officials reviewing arrangements to erect fences on the Pak-Afghan border when the incident occurred.

The spokesman had said further that two Pakistani soldiers lost their lives in cross-border attacks on April 7 and 8, besides injuries to several others. Following the announcements, several armed tribesmen, belonging to Toori Bangish and other tribes started approaching the border posts.

"Pakistani troops are exercising maximum restraint so as to avoid any Afghan civilian casualties", ISPR said, adding that five soldiers were wounded in the attack.

Afghanistan and Pakistan share a 2,430-kilometer (1,510-mile) long disputed border region called the Durand Line, named after the British colonial officer Sir Mortimer Durand who drew it between the then British India and Afghanistan in 1896. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation". The Afghan officials blamed that the Pakistani troops crossed on to their side of the border, prompting a response by border forces and the local tribal force.




The bodies of the two Pakistanis were found on the Afghan side of the border near Pakistan's tribal belt, Zadran told AFP. He added that local villagers and the Afghan Border Police retaliated with gunfire.

He confirmed that a civilian was killed and two Pakistani guards were arrested. "Two tribesmen were killed and the exchange of fire is ongoing", said Mohmud Zazai, a senior army commander in the area.

Pakistan claims it is subject to attacks by Pakistani Taliban militants that Islamabad says are based on the Afghan side of the border.
