KABUL: Nato and Afghan forces came under fire from across the border with Pakistan before Nato aircraft attacked a Pakistani army post, killing 24 soldiers, a Western official and a senior Afghan security official said on Sunday. 

Pakistan has said the attack was an unprovoked assault.

The Nato-led coalition in Afghanistan has made little comment, apart from offering condolences for the deaths and admitting it was “highly likely” they had been caused by its forces.

“They came under cross-border fire,” the Western official said.

The Afghan official said troops had come under fire from inside Pakistan as they were descending from helicopters, which had returned fire.

Both officials asked not to be named because the attack is so sensitive.

It has severely strained already fractious relations between the United States and Islamabad.

Protests erupt across Pakistan

Thousands gathered outside the United States (US) consulate in Karachi on Sunday to protest against the cross-border air attack.

A Reuters reporter at the scene said the angry crowd shouted “Down with America”. One young man climbed on the wall surrounding the heavily fortified compound and attached a Pakistani flag to barbed wire.
“America is attacking our borders. The government should immediately break ties with it,” said Naseema Baluch, a housewife attending the Karachi demonstration.

“America wants to occupy our country but we will not let it do that.”

About 500 members of Jamaat-e-Islami staged a protest in Mohmand, where the NATO attack took place.

“Jihad is the only answer to America”, they yelled.

    Of course they must have come under fire for such a strong response in reply, hence the damage!!!
    Its really time for Pakistanis to come clean and start some basic self examination of their attitude and effort in this War on Terror, as their sincerity and actions leave lot to be desired!!!!
    Its obvious that the statements coming out of Islamabad and GHQ are for local public consumption, and really lack any conviction or answers about their role in the border regions and also in NW !!!

    The attack on pakistani soldiers by NATO chopper is a baseless fabrication. No such attack took place. Where is the evidence? Pakistan needs to show the world credible evidence to prove that NATO did it. It is not providing any evidence so far.
    The pilot of the helicopter was last seen using the word allah in an interrogation video released on the internet. This proves that the pilot of the helicopter was a pakistani muslim. It was an inside job by their own people.

    @headgefunder, how many times have the NATO actually thought about their actions? If they had they would not have incessantly made a fool of themselves in Iraq and Afghanistan. or were the US troops thinking rationally about what they did in Guantanamo Bay.. ?

    Its easy to consider the death of 28 people as damage when it does not happen to your own. Let me be insensitive and say for once : That the US had 9/11 coming considering the plundering it had being doing in the rest of the world… ” Hence the damage”, However, unlike you I know how to respect humanity and thus would condemn the action as a loss of precious lives rather than damage.

    Dude, Pak troops were not in the barracks, they were manning an international border post. They are supposed to guard the border day and night, at least, a dozen or so troops must have been on sentry duty at the time of attack.
    Another important fact one should keep in mind is that NATO troops wouldn’t have traveled from deep inside Afghanistan to Pak border just to kill a couple of dozen Pak soldiers, because, there was nothing for them to gain by it.
    The truth is not as simple as Pakistani authorities are trying to project. Either there must be some kind of misunderstanding that resulted in the exchange of fire or there is a more sinister truth which both sides are trying to hide.

    The incident is controversial ?

    a. Had their been firing from the Pakistani side, do you think that the NATO headquarters would not have been informed immediately of the incident and probably issued a report on Pakistan backtracking ? It was a browny point for NATO had it done that, as they could have proved again how the failure in Afghanistan was due to Pakistan not doing more and siding with the enemy. It took them one day to come up with the theory that it was self defence. Does not stick.

    . Secondly do the math 24 of ours and O ( DUCK) of theirs. How many times have you seen that happening when there is cross border firing between two well trained armed forces? I agree that the sleeping theory seems far-fetched, as radars must have detected the helicopter , plane whatever entering Pakistan ( hopefully). Yet self defence come on.

    I’m usually a huge critic of Pakistan’s role and accept the dual game allegations by independent and international sources and insincerity by the top brass and abuses by some of our men, and reject the usual faux ‘ghairat brigade’ outrage….

    However, this is a pathetic excuse by NATO’s ‘unnamed sources’. They should admit they messed up big time, and many of our guys are sincere and have been bravely battling militants with their lives even if their leadership have been schizophrenic or betraying with the lack of truth.

    Killing 24 Pakistani soldiers is no joke and there would be consequences, justifiable.

    However, I believe due to the anti-American sentiment and prejudice in Pakistan, the reactionaries will take the punitive measures too far and undermine all efforts, getting the pre-text that they needed, handing the religious and nationalist extremists another win…

    Where is the proof that the soldiers were killed by NATO? Do you think NATO soldiers are foolish to kill people in a checkpost and to endanger the supply route?

    I think it is more possible that an indoctrinated solider at the check post had a brain-snap and fired at the NATO chopper on his own thus causing them to retaliate.

    Maybe NATO fired at fleeing terrorists and they ran and took refuge in the checkpost. Possible, no?

    This is clearly a conspiracy by Pakistan to malign America and to cut off the NATO route and to extract more billions in aid.

    Shock; horror; how dare the Pakistanis accuse NATO forces of killing 25 Pakistan soldiers. NATO are as innocent and clean as the driven snow in this particular incident. NATO may have killed around three million people over the last ten years or so, but they would not kill their Pakistani buddies, would they? Also, NATO would not lie would they, and as they keep insinuating it is all the fault of those Pakistanis? And why is it Pakistan’s fault? It is because Pakistan has not cleaned up those dreadful Taliban fighters. It does not matter that the entire Western world with all the latest killing gadgetry have not been able to do it in ten years, the fault is entirely in Pakistan’s court. Another point to consider is: why are the Taliban fighters in Pakistan? Does anybody think it may be due to the fact that NATO has chased them over the border? Now that they are over the border NATO wants to keep chasing them with drones, or other aircraft, and of course this includes women and children if they happen to get in the way.Recommend

    ahhh, I wanted to resist it but you leave me with little option so lets address one thing at a time.

    a. Do also note that your Nation was wrong in creating the monster it can no longer control, namely Taleban !!!!
    Ans: Lets dig within the unbiased history books and see what led to the creation of the Afghan Taliban, namely the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Who might I ask was the biggest contender of Soviet at that time ? Am sure you would have the answer to that. Fact : Pakistan Backed by the US trained the Afghan Taliban to fight against the Soviet, thus it was a proxy war being fought on behalf of the US. Ammunition provided by the US, training provided with specialists from both side. Its just ironic how Frankenstein ends up biting you in the a* just a few decades later. Thus , before the blame game, lets get our facts right shall we?

    b.They were also wrong to train Jihadis to fight their proxy wars in Kashmir !!!
    Too many wrongs, simply do not make it right!!!
    Lo-behold I actually agree with something you are saying. However , is Pakistan the only nation using such proxy tactics,? Should you not divulge in the history of RAW, and some of its heroics in Balochistan and in the past East Pakistan before pointing fingers. As you eloquently said too many wrongs do not make a right.

    The result : Its easy pointing fingers towards a single nation, that perhaps is faced with a bigger challenge than you or the United States would fathom. Its easier talking about terrorism when it hits you once in a blue moon , as it did with the United States in 9/11. Why do you not have an out and out war in Kashmir to get rid of the militants?? Because the collateral damage it will inflict will serve as a further impetus to innocent taking up arms against the Indian Government. That is the problem that the short sighted policies of the US and the blind faith of people like you in whatever has been fed by the US and its cronies has led this region to face. You cannot fight terrorism by acting as terrorists. There is a thin line between justice and revenge. America has been on the losing end , until it accepts its folly and sits down to come up with a solution to the Afghan problem, I can assure you not even a state like Pakistan ( who you seem to believe is powerful enough to have solutions to everything) can put an end to this misery . We all have made a mess out of this, Pakistan included, Yet we alone cannot clean it , so that the super power can win the next freakin elections!! I rest my case

They cannot distinguish between a friend and enemy untill they are fired upon and sometimes its too late. Every moving object, other than our own soldiers should be declared enemy combatant.

We will replace the current set up of brahman controlled religio-political-corporate elitist mafia. Maoists already control 45% of India and will soon overrun the cities.

    DONT MISS IT, coming soon to the city near YOU!!
    THE MAOIST REVOLUTION!!

    I nominate Naseema Baluch to be our foreign minister in view of her statement and considering her ample knowledge of international relations by breaking diplomatic relations & possibly attacking NATO forces.

    “America is attacking our borders. The government should immediately break ties with it,” said Naseema Baluch, a housewife attending the Karachi demonstration.

    Yes my Maoist brothers are learning a lot from you people , but being tackeled with due care . Indian forces are specialized by you people in this specific field of specialization in Kasmir for the last 64 years . Don’t worry Maoist are niether Mohazir nor Baloch and nor Kkashmiries for us . Some Eliet is also working for them . We will pick up them for the talk . And when the Brahman of the two side will talk across the table ,solution will be there . Other wise we are not worried . Our armed forces will take care off . Terror era is now being strangulated by the world community …….?

    @Maoist?

    The last maoist leader who got killed was born in brahmin family. What is your take on it. Remove the colored glasses you will see spectrum of colors in India. Do not chose to see only one color.

    Only by birth in a brahmin family one can not become brahmin . Maoist problem is an out come of economic disparity responsible for gulf between tne rich and poor . But it is also an eternal fact that both have coexisted since time immemorial and will esixt in the future as well . Maoist philosophy is also not perfect as the same is true with captilism . The clash between the two can be chanalizesed in to a constructive competition between tne two . Powerty is not only the by product of captilism but it is also a by product of powerty itself . Our poor labourers are working in Afghanistan , Kashmir , Baluchistan and every where in the world being fasilitated their dispersal by rich . The balance between rich and poor can be maintained but can not be solved through aligation on each other particularly on the instigation of some foreign forces .

    @hedgefunder: I see your anti Pakistan comments on every news item. Is there nothing of interest for you in India? Unless NATO comes up with a real apology and way to ensure such tragic accidents won’t recur Pakistan has every right to play hardball.

    @Tehreek-e-Insaf FATA: Not really. We have a supply line through Iran into Herat. We can use that …it will involve huge fees payable to Iran same as Pak charges however convoys will not be attacked so in the end the costs will be lower. And then Pakistan loses its relevance.

    @Maria:
    Playing hard is simply for consumption of Local Audience !!! All this talk will vanish within a couple of weeks at most and than business as usual !!!
    Beggers can not be choosers, and Pakistan certainly is not in any position to play any more ball games, as their partners are aware of their deceit and duplicity over past decade !!!
