Pakistan has closed its border with Afghanistan after the increasing tension between the two countries. According to Al-Jazeera the so-called Durand Line frontier drawn by the British in 1896 and disputed by Afghanistan has been witnessing unpleasant reaction of the Afghan government since Pakistan began patrolling along it last year. This 2,600 km long border line has ever been under severe tension. The situation along this border became more tense when on 5th of this May Afghan border forces opened fire on Pakistan’s security personnel guarding a census team in Baluchistan’s Chaman area. At least nine people were killed and over 40 others injured as a result of this firing. Pakistan’s military’s media wing said narrating the details that Afghan Border Police had been creating hurdles in conduct of census in divided villages of Killi Luqman and Killi Jahangir in Chaman area on Pakistani side of the border since April 30. After this grave loss the security forces of Pakistan had to pay back in the same coin. Media says more than 50 Afghan security personnel were killed and another 100 injured. However, the Inspector General Frontier Corps Balochistan Maj. Gen Nadeem Anjum said, “We are not happy over their losses since they are our Muslim brothers”. A senior officer of the Pakistan Army General Amir Riaz said talking to the media reporters on the same issue that the situation will remain the same “until Afghanistan changes its behaviour”. He further said that Afghanistan would not benefit from such attacks in any way and that the Afghan government should be ashamed of such acts.Read More »AFGHANISTAN IN TROUBLE
