Pakistan's border guards have killed seven “terrorists” attempting to cross the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in North Waziristan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The Pakistan Army's public relations office reported that these individuals were killed in a clash with the country’s security forces.

According to the statement, the incident took place in the Spinkai area of North Waziristan, and a significant number of weapons, ammunition, and explosives was recovered from these individuals.

The Pakistani army emphasised in its statement on the need for the Taliban to effectively manage its borders, urging them to fulfil their responsibilities in preventing terrorists from using Afghan territory against Pakistan.

Efforts to alleviate border tensions between Pakistan and the Taliban over the past three years have yielded no tangible results. Pakistan consistently accuses the Taliban of harbouring terrorist groups, including the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), and of failing to take decisive action against them.

In response to these allegations, the Taliban says that the root causes of instability lie within Pakistan itself.

Furthermore, the Taliban refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, dismissing it as merely a hypothetical line.
