At least 10 persons including an Army Captain killed in a militant attack in FATA

Two soldiers and approximately eight to 10 militants were killed and several others sustained injuries in a skirmish after the militants attacked a checkpost along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, with heavy weapons, in the Mamond Tehsil (Revenue Unit) area of Bajaur Agency in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) on November 13, reports The Nation. Captain Junaid Hafeez and Sepoy Raham were killed in action whereas four other soldiers sustained injuries. Director-General (DG) Inter Services Public Relation (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor stated that Afghanistan’s failure to control its side of the border had made it easy for militants to launch such cross border attacks.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army on November 13 asked Afghanistan and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO’s) Resolute Support Mission (RSM) to further eliminate terrorist sanctuaries on the Afghan side of the border, reports Dawn. “More efforts are required on Afghanistan side by all stakeholders. Lives of forces and citizens (are) equally precious on both sides of border. It now requires elimination of terrorist sanctuaries in Afghanistan and effective Afghan border security,” DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a series of tweets posted on his official account. According to him there has been an increasing trend of cross-border terrorist attacks on Pakistani posts from across Afghanistan. Almost 308 terrorist attacks have taken place this year. This is the highest number of attacks since 2012 when 324 attacks were reported. On an average there have been 248 attacks every year since 2012. About 29 soldiers have been martyred in the attacks over the past six years. Pakistan has 975 posts along the 2,600km border with Afghanistan, which is mostly porous. Afghanistan, meanwhile, has around 218 posts on its side and there are huge gaps in between the largest being 650km long on the southern side.
