AT News Report-KABUL: Unprovoked and sporadic rocket shelling of Pakistani military forces into eastern Kunar province has sparked outburst in Afghanistan. Pakistan in the past days has reportedly launched 250 rockets on Kunar’s Dangam and Sarkano districts, according to the provincial governor Wahidullah Kalimzai.
The rockets have pounded several dwellings, having displaced many people. Some parliament members said that the government should seriously response to Pakistan’s such violent acts and file a complaint with United Nations in this regard.
“Pakistan continues to violate and shell rockets into Afghanistan. The security forces should take similar actions,” said MP Mohammad Nawab Mangal.
“The government should file a complaint with United Nations. Pakistan officials should know they are coming to Afghanistan and their repetitive dialogue and meeting meant to ridicule the Afghan government and people,” said MP Zakaria Zakaria.
The Defense Ministry, however, said that it has not been silent in this regard, and responded similarly.
“We will act seriously and use every possible option if such violation [by Pakistani military] continues,” the Ministry’s Deputy Spokesman Mohammad Radmanish told reporters today during a news conference.
The shelling comes days after Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi met with Afghan government officials including President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul and raised also the issue of cross-border shelling.
