Afghan border forces bravely responded to the Pakistan invasion and Afghan soldier destroyed a Pakistan tank. Ministry of foreign affairs of Afghanistan has warned that if the neighboring country didn’t half provocative action it would face harsh military reaction of Afghanistan and Pakistan would be responsible for that. Commenting on the issue of Durand line, Sidiq Sidiqi, spokesman of ministry of interior of Afghanistan told media that Pakistan military forces by violating international laws once more tried to reestablish their military facilities across the Durand line on Afghan soil. But, Afghan forces didn’t tolerate invasion of their motherland by Pakistan forces and `prevented from reconstruction of military facilities with force. Evaluating impacts of Pakistani invasion on bilateral relations between the two neighbors, senate chairman Fazel Hadi Muslimayr warned the neighboring country that the people of Afghanistan are completely ready to fight shoulder with the ANSF for defense of their country.

First of round of armed clash between Afghan and Pakistani forces burnt out on Wednesday night and both sides tolerated some lose in the battle. Since couple of week’s tensions on Islamabad – Kabul relations have been expanded and now these worsening ties are getting perilous shape which will affect the whole region.
