Pak-Afghan forces exchange fire at Torkham
Armed personnel with the Afghan Border Police and Pakistan’s Frontier Corps exchanged fire at the border crossing at Torkham late Sunday. Tensions at the crossing have been high since Pakistani authorities implemented stringent visa requirements and clamped down on Afghan entry to Pakistan.
According to Afghan news agencies, violence erupted on Sunday over the “installation of a gate by Pakistan.” Though information remains limited, Afghan news agencies in the area report no casualties on either side. Dunya News reports that the violence may also have started over Pakistan’s interest in constructing an overhead bridge on the border.
Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations, the military’s communications arm, reported that one “Pakistani soldier was injured due to Afghan firing.”
