KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon’s border forces are capable of giving a tit-for-tat response to Pakistaninfo-icon’s rocket strikes, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Tuesday.

Pakistani forces have once again fired around 200 rockets into different parts of the eastern province of Kunar, leaving four civilians injured.

Maj. Gen. Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for MoD, told Pajhwok Afghan News the border forces of the country could respond to shelling from Pakistani troops without permission from the central government.

He said the Afghan forces would respond to aggression in any part of the country. Pakistan was in a bad situation, standing isolated as a result of international pressures, the spokesman believed.

“Pakistan has come under international pressures due to positive policies and efforts of the Afghan government. With such incursions, they want to divert people’s attention,” Waziri remarked.

According to the official, Afghanistan’s brave border security personnel have been ordered to target the area where rockets are fired from into Afghanistan.
