Pakistan moves towards Afghan Border with heavy artillery

Apart from disrupting trade, the closure of border may also delay the repatriation of Afghan refugees by the refugee agency of the United Nations.

Pakistan-backed Taliban has created havoc in Afghanistan.

The matter under discussion was the existing volatile situation on the western border after Pakistan Army, today, tightened security at Pak-Afghan border to strictly monitor terrorists' movement. A video of Hagel's claims was recorded at the Cameron University in Oklahoma in 2011, but it was released only recently by Washington Free Beacon Website, according to The News.

The MoFA statement says that Pakistan has responded positively to the letter.

Is India behind the terrorist attacks in Pakistan?

The Pakistani military also pushed the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces to push President Ashraf Ghani's government to take action against the terrorists. Pakistani authorities have carried out a campaign of abuses and threats to drive out almost 600,000 Afghans since July 2016, Human Rights Watch has said in a report released in February 2016.

Last week on Wednesday, 7 people were killed and several others, including judges, injured in two separate suicide attacks in the north-west region of Pakistan.


Security officials said at least 18 terrorists had been killed in Sindh overnight, and 13 more in other parts of the country.

Karzai said the Afghan government wants Pakistan to take strict action against terrorists that are hiding in Pakistan.

Pakistan alleges that the group, which claims to be behind the recent wave of terrorist attacks, has found "safe haven" in Afghanistan.

Pakistan has a long history with ISIS.

In an informal talk with media persons Friday, Interior Minister emphatically referred to the presence of black sheep within Afghan refugees who actually facilitated recent terrorist attacks especially in Lahore and Peshawar.

The Pakistani military said it used heavy artillery to fire at militant hideouts in Afghanistan Monday, after carrying out airstrikes on both sides of the border over the weekend.
