Pakistani Shelling Kills Three In Kunar, Officials Say

At least three students were killed on Thursday when Pakistani military cross-border shelling hit a Madrasa in the eastern province of Kunar province, local officials said.

According to officials, Pakistani military have once again resumed shelling on parts of Shultan district.

A spokesman for the provincial governor, Abdul Ghani Musamim, said that 180 missiles hit the district and one of the missiles hit a Madrasa, and three students--aged 9, 12 and 13--were killed.

Former President Hamid Karzai condemned the shelling from the Pakistan side and asked Pakistan to stop.

“The Pakistan military's repeated attacks on Kunar are acts of aggression against our soil and blatant violations of international law. I call on the government of Pakistan to stop these attacks immediately and prevent further damage to relations between the two countries, and to adopt a peaceful and civilized attitude towards Afghanistan,” Karzai said in a tweet.

In May 2019 Afghanistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) summoned the charge d'affaires of Pakistan’s embassy to denounce cross-Durand Line shelling by Pakistani military on parts of Afghanistan.
