Six terrorists killed as forces repulse attacks from across Afghan border

Rawalpindi (Staff Report): At least six terrorists were killed as security forces repulsed terrorist attacks from across the Pak-Afghan border, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) reported on Sunday.


According to the military's media wing, the attacks targeted border posts and border fencing parties in the Bajaur area of KP and the Qamar Din Qarez area in Balochistan. Security personnel have foiled seven infiltration attempts in the Bajaur area alone during the last 24 hours, it added.

"Four security personnel and a soldier of the Pakistan Air Force, deployed at an observation post, got injured during the exchange of fire," read an ISPR press release.

"Taking advantage of ungoverned spaces and [with] facilitation [from] inside Afghanistan, terrorists are resorting to such attacks to prevent fencing and construction of border posts," it added.
