Pakistani militia retreats from high altitude Khost point

KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Afghan security officials on Tuesday claimed forcing Pakistani forces to retreat and stop constructing a high altitude post in Zazai Miadan district of southeastern Khost province.

Khost police chief Brig. Gen. Faizullah Ghairat told Pajhwok Afghan News that a few days ago, Pakistani border forces tried to build posts on a high altitude point of the mountain in Mirzawlang area.

But security forces in cooperation with residents repulsed the Pakistaninfo-icon forces and took control of the peak.

“Pakistani forces left behind flags and engineering work tools on the about 1,750 meters high point,” he said.

Ghairat did not say if any clash took place between the two sides, but some sources said a clash did occur but there were no casualties to any side.

Jan Mir Zazai, deputy chief of the Khost provincial council, said the Pakistan forces wanted to establish posts in some areas of the district.
