RAWALPINDI – Six people were killed and more than a dozen injured after Afghan Border Forces opened unprovoked and indiscriminate fire of heavy weapons onto civilian population in Chaman area of Balochistan.

ISPR, in a statement, said the Afghan forces used artillery and heavy weapons to target the civilian population. It said 17 citizens were injured in the attack.

Pakistani border troops have given befitting albeit measured response against the uncalled for aggression, but avoided targeting innocent civilians in the area, the military media’s wing.

Pakistan has also approached Afghan authorities at Kabul to highlight severity of the situation and demanded strict action to obviate any such recurrence of the incident in the future.
