Pakistan warns Afghanistan over cross-border shelling in its territory

Islamabad, Tue, 13 Nov 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Nov. 13 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani has expressed concern over recent cross-border shelling by Afghan forces that killed at least four Pakistani civilians.

Jilani informed the Afghan ambassador about Pakistan's stance on the incident, saying that such "unhelpful and unproductive" attacks would only harm the conducive environment that Pakistan was trying to create for promotion of peace and stability in the region, reports The Express Tribune.

He strongly urged the Afghan government to take appropriate measures to prevent recurrence of similar incidents in future.

According to military sources, the Afghan National Army troops had fired mortar rounds on November 11 from the Khuja Khadar (KK) Top checkpost in Afghanistan, which hit a civilian vehicle some two kilometres north of the Naray area of South Waziristan.

As a result, five people were killed. The victims were locals who were returning home after collecting firewood near the Pak-Afghan border. (ANI)
