4 Pakistani Troops Killed In Cross-Border Terrorist Attack

Soldiers working on border fencing with Afghanistan ambushed, says army.

At least four Pakistani paramilitary troops were killed and six others injured in a cross-border terrorist attack on Wednesday, the military said.
The attack took place in the Zhob district of southwestern Balochistan, which borders the Afghan province of Zabul. It was the latest in a series of similar incidents in the restive North Waziristan and South Waziristan tribal districts.
"Terrorists from across Afghanistan ambushed FC (Frontier Corps) troops moving for fencing. Four FC soldiers embraced shahadat (martyrdom), while six got injured," said a statement by ISPR, the military's media wing.
Pakistan has long accused the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan of targeting security forces and civilians from "safe havens" across the border.
To prevent such attacks, Pakistan is fencing a 2,400-kilometer (1,500 miles) border with Afghanistan, also known as the Durand Line.
US troops have started pulling out of Afghanistan in line with a 2020 peace agreement with the Taliban. -
