Officials from Levies claimed that the Afghan side of the border fired numerous artillery rounds at the civilian population along the Boghra Road and Custom House regions.

According to the authorities, the intervention of Afghan soldiers during the repair of the fence in the Sheikh Lal Muhammad section of the border had allegedly caused the conflicts.

During a previous attack earlier this week six people were martyred and 17 got injured as per Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

Earlier on December 2, Pakistan’s head of mission to Kabul Ubaid-ur-Rehman Nizamani escaped an assassination attempt.
