Pakistan urges Afghanistan to take action against terrorists attacking border posts

One FC soldier martyred when terrorists in terror attack on Pakistan military post

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson urged neighboring Afghanistan to take action against terrorists after Pakistan’s Frontier Corps (FC) soldier embraced martyrdom in firing from across the Afghan border on January 6.

According to military’s media wing, the ISPR, terrorists fired on a Pakistani military post from the Afghan side of the border in the Mohmand tribal district in the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Wednesday night. A 25-year-old Sepoy Fazal Wahid, a resident of Shangla in Swat valley, sustained bullet injuries during the exchange of fire and succumbed to his wounds.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri condemned the attack which he called “the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan.”

“Pakistan calls upon the Government of Afghanistan to take immediate action against the terrorists and terrorist groups finding sanctuaries in Afghanistan to target Pakistani security forces,” Chaudhri said in a statement.

Pakistani security officials have said that militants have crossed the border into Afghanistan to flee major military operations in the country’s tribal regions.

Pakistan is currently fencing its 2600-km border with Afghanistan to stem illegal cross-border movement and militant infiltration.
