According to ISPR, a Pakistani check post on Bajaur sector was targeted from Afghanistan side last night, resulting in the martyrdom of sepoy Sabir Shah.
The spokesperson of the military’s media wing said that the issue of border management has been raised multiple times with Afghanistan in order to stop Kabul government for curbing the use of its soil for attacks against Pakistan.
