By KHAAMA PRESS

A member of the Afghan Border Police was martyred following heavy clashes have been reported between the Afghan and Pakistani security forces along the Durand Line on Sunday afternoon.

The incident took place around 2:00 pm local time after the Pakistani security forces launched an attack on the Afghan Border Police and Afghan National Police outposts in Nari district of eastern Kunar province.

Provincial police chief Gen. Abdul Habib Syed Khel confirmed that a member of the Afghan Border Police lost his life during the gun battle.

A local official earlier said the Pakistani forces used heavy and lights weapons to target the Afghan security forces.

This comes as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Pakistan’s ambassador in Kabul last month to protest against border violation and cross-border shelling.

According to the Ministry of Interior, the Pakistani soldiers were trying to establish military installations inside the Afghan territory in Angor Ada area in Barmal District of Paktika province when the skirmish took place.
