KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Scores of protesters took to the street in southeastern Khost on Monday against what they alleged Pakistaninfo-icon’s illegal construction deep into Afghanistaninfo-icon territory.

The enraged demonstrators condemned Pakistan for construction on Afghan soil. The protesters were carrying banners inscribed with anti- Pakistan and Iran slogans for interfering Afghanistan’s affairs.

Col. Musa Khan, a civil societyinfo-icon activist, told Pajhwok Afghan News that “we will sternly deal with those who intervene in Afghanistan’s affairs.”

 Dost Mohammad, another protester, said that Afghans were ready to sacrifice their lives for safeguarding of their motherland. “We demand President Ashraf Ghani to respond harshly to Iran and Pakistan as they give our children with guns and weapons,” he added.

Pakistan’s would be offered with stout resistance, had Pakistan not stopped construction in border areas of Afghanistan, the protesters said.

Dawood Khan, a protester, said: “We are ready to sacrifice our lives and wealth for security of our country and Pakistan should stop construction inside Afghan soil.”
