According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the incident happened when the soldiers were on regular duty patrolling the Abba Khel, Spinwam area late last night near the Pak-Afghan border. The killed soldiers included Sepoy Akhtar Hussain, 23, a resident of Baltistan.

The media’s military wing added in exchange of fire, two miscreants were killed. In a separate incident on the Pak-Afghan Border in Dir, three soldiers were killed while one was wounded when a suspected terrorist opened fire.

Relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan are overall hostile with both Islamabad and Kabul blaming each other for harbouring and sponsoring terrorists against each other.
