Police have confirmed that Pakistan has fired off more than 120 missiles against three districts in Kunar province in the past 24 hours.
One Wounded In Pakistan Missile Attack On Kunar
Pakistani forces once again resumed missile shelling in Kunar province, with more than 120 having been fired off in the past 24 hours, Kunar police chief Juma Gul Hamat said.
A number of residents from Shiltan district of Kunar province said the Pakistani military has fired off more than fifty missiles since Saturday. Missiles have also been fired on Dangam and Narai districts, police confirmed.
The police chief also confirmed that one person was wounded.
However, Pakistani officials have claimed that they targeted terrorist groups by firing off the missiles but residents said the missiles hit their houses and the surrounding forests.
Official information shows that at least 1,500 missiles were fired on Kunar province from Pakistan during the month of September.
In February the Ministry of Defense (MoD) warned that Pakistan’s missile attacks on the eastern regions of the country would have serious consequences, suggesting that a diplomatic solution to the issue between the two neighbors was needed.
