Pak Army completes fencing of 482km Pak-Afghan border patch
The security officials briefed a delegation of journalists on Thursday and detailed that in 2017, the Pakistan Army in the first phase started working on 482km long patch along Pakistan-Afghanistan border and completed it well before time.
"Equipped with water, solar electricity and protection mines, 233 forts have also been constructed on the 1,403 km long border. To link these forts, safe tracks are also being constructed," said the officials.
According to authorities, annually two-three attempts are made to disrupt the fence building and to cross the border into Pakistan.
Till now 1,900 Afghans have been arrested and deported, detailed the officials.
Just two days back, the security forces killed three terrorists and handed over their bodies to Afghan officials, however, 539 km long route - the easiest route to enter Pakistan - has already been fenced.
The border fencing would benefit peaceful people of the two countries, besides restricting terrorists; they were aiming at speedy completion of the work in priority one areas, he added.
