A cross-border terrorist attack from Afghanistan in district Chitral’s Kalash area was repulsed by the Pakistan Army.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement notified that four soldiers embraced martyrdom while repulsing terrorist attacks on two Pakistan Army check posts located near the Afghanistan border in the general area Kalash, District Chitral.
During the fire exchange, 12 terrorists were sent to hell, while a large number of the militants were critically injured.
“On 6 September 2023, a large group of terrorists equipped with the latest weapons, attacked two Pakistani military posts located closer to Pakistan Afghanistan border in general area Kalash, District Chitral,” a statement released by the ISPR stated.
“Owing to the heightened threat environment, own posts were already on high alert. The valiant soldiers fought bravely and repulsed the attacks inflicting heavy casualties on the terrorists. During the fire exchange, 12 terrorists were sent to hell, while a large number has been critically injured,” the statement said.
“Security forces of Pakistan are determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our soldiers further strengthen our resolve. The brave people of Chitral also stand firmly with the security forces in not allowing the terrorists to ruin the peace of the area,” it added.
“The interim Afghan government is expected to fulfill its obligations and deny the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for perpetrating acts of terrorism against Pakistan,” the military’s media cell further added.
“The terrorists’ movement and concentration in the Gawardesh, Pitigal, Barg-e-Matel, and Batash areas of Nuristan and Kunar provinces of Afghanistan had been identified and timely shared with the interim Afghan government,” ISPR said.
