Military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor has said that Pakistan is paying price for security vacuum on Afghan side of the border.
In a series of tweets, Major General Ghafoor spoke of a Pakistan Army captain and a soldier being martyred when fired upon by terrorists from across the border in Afghanistan.
Two Pakistani Soldiers embraced Shahadat while four others received injuries in an exchange of fire with terrorists along the Pak-Afghan border, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR). It is the fourth such attack on Pakistani posts from the Afghan side of the border in two months.

Four Pakistani soldiers were wounded in the attack on a military post in the northwestern region of Bajaur, the army said.
Pakistan defends its border security plan, saying anti-state militants after fleeing security operations have taken refuge in "ungoverned" Afghan areas and plotting cross-border terrorist attacks to destabilize the country.
Lives of forces and citizens equally precious on both sides of the border, he said, adding that more efforts were required on Afghanistan side by all the stakeholders.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
