Five brave soldiers of the Pakistan Army and more than 10 suspected militants were reportedly killed in a cross-border “terrorist attack” on three Pakistani border posts along the Pak-Afghan border area on Sunday night, the 6th of march 2017 Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.
ISPR in a statement said “terrorists” from across the border had targeted the posts late on Sunday night in Mohmand Agency.
“Effective presence, vigilance and response repulsed terrorists attempt,” read the statement.
“In exchange of fire five soldiers embraced martyrdom and over 10 terrorists were reportedly killed,” it added.
Pakistan shares a 2200 km long and porous border with Afghanistan called Durand Line. Pakistan has already sealed the border after a series of bomb blasts across the country, responsibility of which was taken by terrorist organizations across the border.
