Pakistan fires 10 missiles into Kunar: Wahidi
The cross-border attack on Dangam district caused no casualties, said Syed Fazlullah Wahidi, who asked the neighbouring country to halt the incursions immediately.
He added at least 600 missiles fired from Pakistan's soil had landed in Kunar and Nuristan provinces since Wednesday. One civilian was killed and hundreds of families were displaced as a result of the cross-border shelling.
Ambassador Mohammad Sadiq was told to ask his government to immediately stop the shelling
A day earlier, Afghanistan strongly denounced the rockets strikes, warning the issue would be taken to the UN Security Council if the assaults continued.
A Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson said they were trying to settle the row diplomatically. Faramarz Tamana indicated Kabul might move the Security Council if the problem persisted.
Separately, the Ministry of Defence said Pakistani should realise that Afghan soldiers, fully supported by the people, had the ability to give a befitting response to such attacks.
