ISLAMABAD: A large group of terrorists equipped with latest weapons, attacked two Pakistani military posts located closer to Pakistan-Afghanistan border in general area of Kalash in district Chitral.

According to the military’s media wing, terrorists’ movement and concentration in Gawardesh, Pitigal, Barg-e-Matel, and Batash areas of Nuristan and Kunar provinces of Afghanistan had already been picked up and were timely shared with interim Afghan government.

Owing to heightened threat environment, own posts were already on high alert. The valiant soldiers fought bravely and repulsed the attacks inflicting heavy casualties on the terrorists.
