The ISPR claimesd to have responded effectively and targeted Afghan border posts of Kandkxi and Dilbar from where fire was being initiated. The Afghan border post suffered “substantial damage” in the retaliatory action from the Pakistani troops. However, the hostilities stopped after engagement at the military level.

The two countries often trade accusations that the other side is firing across the border, which runs for 2,400km (1,490 miles), much of it through mountainous terrain. The Taliban and other armed groups operate on both sides of the porous line.
