Tensions between Islamic Emirate forces and the Pakistani military at the Durand Line have been reported by Bilal Karimi, the Islamic Emirate's deputy spokesman.
These clashes took place in Paktia province's Dand Patan area.
Karimi said on Twitter that military facilities should not be built close to the Durand Line "in principle," and he said that yesterday the Pakistani military sought to build an outpost there.
Some Islamic Emirate members went to talk to them, but Pakistani soldiers opened fire which caused casualties, Karimi said.
Karimi said that the Islamic Emirate's forces also opened fire, and it is possible that Pakistani soldiers also suffered casualties.
According to the Islamic Emirate's deputy spokesman, the incident is being investigated, and senior officials have been informed of the issue.
