Pakistan Captured 4 Afghan Posts at Torkham Border

Unofficial information we have received from Social Media Facebook that Pakistan Army have captured 4 Afghan Posts at Torkham border. But no official news has been announced yet due to diplomatic and international political reasons. Pakistan and Afghan Army is using heavy explosives and tanks. Many citizens got injured including Army personnel.

Pakistani and Afghan soldiers clashed overnight at the main border crossing at the end of the Khyber Pass, officials said on Monday, with at least one killed and several wounded, further straining relations between the militancy-plagued neighbours.

One Afghan soldier was killed and six were wounded, an Afghan official said. The Pakistani army said one of its soldiers was wounded in the fighting at the Torkham Gate crossing in the mountainous region of northwestern Pakistan and eastern Afghanistan. Both countries blamed each other for starting the fighting, which broke out at roughly 9 p.m. local time on Sunday and continued into the night.

We currently have agreed on a ceasefire with #Pakistan. We hope this problem will end through the work by diplomatic addresses,” the Afghan government’s chief executive, Abdullah Abdullah, said on Twitter. “The current fight Pakistan started doesn’t help anyone’s interest.”

Relations between the neighbours have been strained in recent months. Kabul has accused Pakistan of harbouring militants seeking to topple the Afghan government, including the notorious Haqqani network, blamed for high-profile attacks in the capital.

Pakistan denies supporting militants and said it was constructing a border gate near Torkham, a Pakistani town close to the frontier, to prevent militants crossing from Afghanistan into Pakistan.

“In order to check movement of terrorists through Torkham, Pakistan is constructing a gate on its own side of the border as a necessity to check unwanted and illegal movement,” Pakistan’s army said in a statement. “Pakistani security forces responded to Afghan firing effectively.”
