Cross-border terror attack from Afghanistan kills two Pak soldiers

"Terrorists from the Afghanistan side attempted an attack on Pakistani posts along the Pak-Afghan border in Bajaur Agency".

However, the statement stated that the forces effectively responded to the attack and killed 10 fleeing terrorist and wounded several others.

The DG ISPR comments came after two Pakistani servicemen - among them a captain - were martyred in a cross-border attack by Afghanistan-based terrorists in Bajaur Agency. Elimination of terrorists' sanctuaries in Afghanistan and effective Afghan border security is required.

Separately, the ISPR said in another press release that the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa met with Pakistan army team which won Gold Medal in "Exercise Cambrian Patrol" held in the United Kingdom from October 13-22.

South Africa 'cannot afford to provide free higher education'
The state can guarantee the loan or, better still, purchase the loan, so that the student becomes a debtor in its books. Stipends are also to be made available through TVET colleges for needy students to cover full cost of study.

Militants have crossed into Pakistan from Afghanistan and killed a Pakistani army officer and a soldier, the Pakistani military said on Monday.

The recently cleared area of Rajgal in Khyber Agency around Mustil Pass was targeted by Afghan-based terrorist group, ISPR had reported then. It blamed the absence of Afghan authority on the Afghan side of the border for encouraging militants to plot such attacks. Two soldiers were also martyred and 15 were injured during the operation.

Both the countries share a 2,600-kilometre border which the Pakistan Army is now fencing to stop cross-border movement of militants.

Afghanistan, which does not recognise the border, has lately been angry over a Pakistani plan to build a fence along most of it.
