10 militants killed in clash on Pakistan Afghan border

"Absence of Afghan writ on Afghan side of the border like many other areas facilitate terrorists to undertake such attempts", said the ISPR.

In a series of tweets, Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said that Pakistan has done its part including cleared all areas of terrorists, border fencing, building new check posts, enhanced presence along Pak-Afghan border and established of crossing points.

Media cell of the military reported that at least ten terrorists were killed in retaliation at the border. "The attempt was effectively responded killing 8-10 fleeing terrorists while many seen running back [were] injured", ISPR said.

However, the ISPR added that during the exchange of fire with terrorists, fearless sons of soil Captain Junaid Hafeez and Sepoy Raham embraced shahadat while four soldiers got injured.

Ghafoor added that the lives of soldiers and civilians on both sides of the border are precious and further stated it requires the elimination of terrorists and their sanctuaries in Afghanistan.

The incident comes days after a similar attack on a checkpost at the border in Rajgal Valley left one sepoy martyred.

Independent verification was not possible as the area is largely closed off to reporters. It is the fourth such attack on Pakistani posts from the Afghan side of the border in two months.

Then advisor to PM on national security Sartaj Aziz had announced that proper documentation was required henceforth to cross between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
