PESHAWAR: An early Saturday morning attack by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) helicopters killed at least 24 security personnel and injured 12 soldiers on a Pakistani check post in Salala, which is located in the Tehsil Bayzai area of Mohmand Agency on the Pak-Afghan border , sources said.

Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) sources confirmed the attack, but could not determine the number of casualties as the interrogation was still underway.

The incident took place in a village of Salala, which is an area bordering the Kunar province of Afghanistan.

At least 40 soldiers were stationed at the check post.

An official on the condition of anonymity told The Express Tribune that there was consistent shelling on the Pakistani check post, which resulted in security forces retaliating.

“The actual number of casualties might rise, as it cannot be determined at the moment,” the official said.

The official added that nearby areas were also attacked by the helicopters.

“It is a matter of national security and we are still interrogating it,” said a security official. “The matter will be taken up at the highest level.”

“This is an attack on Pakistan’s territorial sovereignty, “said Masood Kasur, the governor of Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. “Such cross-border attacks cannot be tolerated any more. The government will take up this matter at the highest level and it will be investigated.”

The situation remained unclear as the political administration did not give any information about the incident.

The incident comes a day after Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani met Commander of Coalition Forces in Afghanistan General Allen Jones to discuss measures of enhancing border control on both sides.

The attack will likely worsen US-Pakistan relations, already at one of their lowest points in history, following a tumultuous year that saw the bin Laden raid, the jailing of a CIA contractor, and US accusations that Pakistan backed a militant attack on the US Embassy in Kabul.

An increase inUS drone strikes on militants in the last few years has also irritated Islamabad, which says the campaign kills more Pakistani civilians in the border area than activists. Washington disputes that, but declines to discuss the drone campaign in detail.

Earlier, it was reported that Nato jets had attacked the border post.

    What does the US and its pirate cohorts provide that is so good for Pakistan that Pakistan would endure such a humiliation? What price does the US pay to rape and rape again Pakistan. What sort of government allows foreigners to slaughter its own people!

    We know how powerful you are. We are always amazed about your military capability and how strong you are in handling Maoist (just a mere quarter of your territory under Maoist) so we are trying hard to learn from you. We are also amazed to know that you need half a million soldiers to govern, rule and terrorize Kashmiris who refused to submit to you.

    @Tamil Arasan,

    If you love your homeland, I suggest you to learn to speak and teach Hindi in all of your schools first. If love for you homeland only means terrorizing Kashmiris who have nothing in common with you (from skin tone to religion to language to culture) to submit, you should ask yourself who are the terrorists here. Let’s not talk about the bravery of Tamils: we saw that in Sri Lanka.

    @Ravi,

    I suggest you to stop reading Indian textbooks and your propaganda. Kashmiri Muslims are the progenies of the native Kashmiris. Kashmiri Muslims still carry with them the surnames Butt, Bhat, Pandit, Sheikh, Dar, Lone etc. Contrary to your lies, Kashmiri Muslims were and are the native people of Kashmir. The 500,000 soldiers of yours who are now occupying Kashmir are the real foreigners and invaders.

These actions of Pak army will lead to such reactions. And soldiers die for no fault of theirs. I think the fblame squarely lies with Gen. Kayani and Pasha.

    3) ‘Kashmiri Muslims still carry with them the surnames’ – I suggest you read history from any foreign text (other than Pakistani) and find the truth yourself. Despite all that Kashmir has gone through, 96% of its population is still Muslim in stark contrast to what Pakistan did to its minority (including Hindus). Indian army is not genocidal as Pakistani army was in Bangladesh, otherwise things would have been different with 7 lakh army personnel in Kashmir!

    4) ‘Kashmiri Muslims were and are the native people of Kashmir’ – and they will be native people of Kashmir as citizens of India safe from franaticism and theocracy until they leave this abode .

    @Indian – The fact of the matter is that Pakistan is a peaceful country that minds its own business and lives peacefully with the rest of the world and its neighbours (India is an exception) On the contrary, it is India’s lies and propaganda against Pakistan that India feeds off of. Pakistan never had any terrorist problems in the past. It is a known fact that it is india who manufactures terrorist from Afghanistan and then spits it out into Pakistan, shamelessly blaming Pakistan. All terrorists are India’s proxy war creation for the sole purpose of destabalizing Pakistan. India’s terror game exposed and well understood by Pakistan.
    India should stop killing the world!. . . . It has killed the US economy by stealing jobs from the US and it creates terrorist from the back door through Afghanistan into Pakistan. Also it promotes wars through its lies and propaganda!
    END OF DISCUSSION*********

    Dear Readers, What happen in Salala is very tragic and we are saddened by the death of 25 brave Pakistani soldiers and officials. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. We are looking at it very seriously, and that is the reason a high ranking official has been appointed to investigate this incident. A full investigation is underway, and we all should reserve comment on the details of what happened until all investigations are completed.

    In an official briefing yesterday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “The President’s reaction is all of our reaction, which is that the events that took those lives — the event, rather, was a tragedy. The loss of Pakistani life was a tragedy. We mourn the brave Pakistani service members who lost their lives. And our sympathies go out to their families and go out to Pakistan” He further said, “We take this matter very seriously. I believe my colleague over at the Pentagon, George Little, announced earlier today that in addition to ISAF looking into this, at the request of General Allen, CENTCOM will be investigating this matter. And we’re obviously very keen on finding out exactly what happened.” He also said, “As for our relationship with Pakistan, it continues to be an important, cooperative relationship that is also very complicated. And we have been — senior U.S. officials have been in contact with the Pakistani government, with their counterparts in Pakistan, including Secretaries Panetta and Clinton, Chairman Dempsey, General Allen, Ambassador Munter. And those contacts will continue. It is very much in our national security interest to maintain a cooperative relationship with Pakistan, because we have shared interests in the fight against terrorism. And so we will continue to work on that relationship.”

    nato has just do it for revolution in Pakistan like in Libia and Egypt and what they have started in other Arabs countries. First they want to bring such revolution in Pakistan in form Taliban but our Intelligence had easily handled that. Now again they are doing such attacks for the same purpose to snach away Nuclear weapon from Pakistan and rule just like in Afghanistan, Iraq and other Muslim countries. Now the only solution of matters for our Intelligence and officials is that Pakistan has to announce that they will fire Atomic bomb on the country whose forces ever attacked Pakistan without any negotiation becuase it will be considered as an attack on Pakistan.
