Kandahar: The Afghan Defense Ministry said nine civilians were killed and 50 others injured in artillery attacks by Pakistani forces on “residential areas”.
The defense ministry statement said the incident occurred at Spin Boldak district in Kandahar in Afghanistan.
Media reports said Pakistan’s nefarious methods to destabilise peace in its neighbouring countries continues at an increased pace.
The Afghan Air Force and the country’s Special Forces were commanded to stay alert for similar actions against Pakistani forces.
The Pakistani establishment have been continuously denying these attacks although there are several instances to prove that Pakistani military forces have resorted to artillery attacks and shelling on the eastern and southern parts of Afghanistan.
