The official in Peshawar claimed that in retaliation, the security forces killed several militants however, their number could not be confirmed.
He said that hundreds of militants attacked the check post in which one official of the Frontier Corps (FC) was killed while three were injured. “A team of security officials lifted and rushed the injured security officials to a hospital,” he said.
In November 2011, Nato forces in Afghanistan attacked the Salala check post and killed 26 security officials of Pakistan. After the attack, Pakistan closed the Nato supply routes to Afghanistan which constrained relations between the governments of Pakistan and US.
