WANA – At least two personnel of law enforcement agencies were wounded in exchange of fire between Pakistan security forces and Afghan National Army and Nato forces on Wednesday at two spots in Angoor Adda area of South Waziristan Agency.
Three personnel of Afghan soldiers were also reportedly killed in the crossfire. However, official sources did not confirm the reports of crossfire.
Sources said that Afghan soldiers opened fire at a check-post on Pakistani side at the Angoor Adda area nearby Wana, the headquarters of South Waziristan Agency, which was immediately retaliated by the Pakistani forces, killing at least three Afghan soldiers.
Local sources talking to INP said that several shops in Angoor Adda area were gutted when motor-shells fired by the Afghan army landed in the Angoor Adda bazaar. The firing is still underway and locals were restricted to their houses as heavy artillery exchanges between the borders guards of the two countries were targeting each other check-posts.
Sources said that reports of crossfire in the bordering area of North Waziristan Agency were also received late on Tuesday. However, no injuries were reported.
Reports say that Afghan and Pakistan forces occasionally trade fire but the incidents rarely escalate or have diplomatic consequences.
