Afghanistan Ministry of Defense reacts against Pakistani military operation ‘Khyber 4’ near the Durand Line

Afghanistan Ministry of Defense (MoD) has reacted over Pakistan’s military operation against so-called Islamic State (IS) group in bordering areas with Afghanistan.

Khyber4KABUL: Pakistan’s military said it has launched a major operation against so-called Islamic State (IS) in the north-western region along the Afghan border.

A Pakistani spokesman said militants had gained ground inside Afghanistan and had to be stopped from extending their influence.

He said the “Khyber 4” operation, backed by the air force, would focus on the mountainous Rajgal Valley area in Khyber Agency.

Now in reaction, MoD says military operations should be launched in terrorist centers placed in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta under monitoring of U.S. and China.

“Military operations need to be launched in both sides of the Durand Line. Everyone understand the terrorist centers are located in Pakistan; Quetta Council, Peshawar Council and Miranshah Council that are Taliban groups,” said Dawlat Waziri, spokesman of MoD.

Previously, Afghanistan agreed with a proposal to conduct joint raids with neighboring Pakistan along the border, monitored and coordinated by the United States.

However, MoD declares no coordination was made between the two countries.

“The decision was military operations under U.S. and China monitoring, but after that they said Daesh and Taliban are not terrorist groups in Pakistan,” Waziri added.

 The nearly 2,600-kilometer, largely-porous border between Afghanistan and Pakistan is called the Durand Line. Both countries regularly accuse each other of not doing enough on their respective sides to stop terrorist infiltration. The allegations are blamed for deep mutual mistrust and strained bilateral ties.

    When are the impotent Afghans and their useless American allies gonna tell the Punjabi Terrorist who
    misrule Napakistan that Pashtun and Baluch have no borders with Punjabis and that the borders of
    Napakistan ends at Margallah Hills.Everything East and North of Indus and Margallah belongs to Pashtun and to Loy Afghanistan. But seems we have a very apologetic and reactionary bunch in power that only seems to placate anti Pashtun and anti Anti Afghan sovereignity from various enemies of of lar aw bar Afghan.If US is serious about peace ,it should force its Punjabi proxy to East of Indus and give them orders to stay put at Rishwaabd . But Alas , they are too precious Terrorist for the US game on Pashtun -Afghan land .
