This comes as numerous cross-border violations have been reported during the past one week, including an attack by Pakistan forces which led to a clash with the Afghan border police forces in eastern Nangarhar province.

Expressing concerns regarding the growing violations by Pakistanis, the relevant institutions were instructed to take necessary measures in a bid to repulse the attempts.

The Pakistani military helicopters infiltrated inside the Afghan soil in eastern Kunar province of Afghanistan recently with the local officials saying the helicopters dropped bombs on certain areas in this province.

The cross-border violations by Pakistani military was at its peak before the formation of the government of national unity late in 2014, but the provocative moves reduced by a larger extent last year.

The Pakistani military used to fire scores of artillery shells on daily basis to eastern Kunar and Nuristan provinces as well as other provinces located along the Durand Line.
