Four people were killed after hundreds of shells and rockets were fired into Afghanistan from the frontier areas of Pakistan, the Associate Press (AP) reported on Sunday.
According to the AP report, Afghan officials said that a few homes were hit during the attack in Dangam district along the border.
However, the neighbouring government has not yet blamed Pakistan’s military for the incident.
AP quoted Kunar provincial police chief General Ewaz Mohammad Naziri as saying that these attacks in nearby Nuristan had forced hundreds of families to flee the area.
Earlier, 13 Pakistani troops were killed on June 25 when Taliban insurgents crossed over from Afghanistan and mounted a deadly ambush on a patrol of Pakistani security forces.
Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf had said that the cross-border attacks by militants were high on the agenda during his visit to Afghanistan.
