Military offensive launched by Pakistan near Pak-Afghan border

To combat the rising number of militants in the area, Pakistan has launched a military operation near the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

According to Maj.Gen Asif Ghafoor who is a spokesman for Pak Army, the Rajgal Valley area in the Khyber tribal region will be cleared out by the air force and artillery. Authorities in Afghanistan have been informed of these measures and they have been asked to conduct similar operations on their side of the border. The two countries have had frosty relations recently as Pakistan has constructed a fence along part of the frontier which Afghanistan does not recognize as an international border.
