Army kills 50 Afghan forces in border fight

"Chaman clash left casualties, deaths & injuries, on Pakistani side too but we instead of celebrating called it unfortunate & regrettable (sic)", he said.

He said the census had been going on in the border areas for four days until April 29 when the Afghan forces started to hinder the process.

According to a United States watchdog, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR): "Casualties suffered by the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) in the fight against the Taliban and other insurgents continue to be shockingly high".

The Wesh-Chaman border crossing is a major border crossing between the two countries.

Pakistan claimed that Afghan border police had fired first, without provocation, at armed guards escorting Pakistani census teams in the border community of Chaman, killing nine people and injuring 40. Afghan police spokesman Zia Durani accused Islamabad of using the census as cover for "malicious activities and to provoke villagers against the government".

Omar Zakhilwa, Afghan president's special envoy and ambassador to Pakistan, said the toll from the incident was two soldiers dead and seven others injured.

He made the statement, speaking to media after meeting the victims of the cross border attack in Chaman, said that the tensions will not serve the interests of any country.

"A very false claims by a Pakistani Frontier Corp that as many as 50 Afghan soldier lost their lives in Pak retaliation; totally rejected", tweeted Sediq Sediqqi, a government spokesman.

While the border clashes between Afghanistan and Pakistan are not a new occurrence, observers say this time around the situation is more "warlike".

He said that the Pakistani Forces retaliated and targeted those afghan posts from where fire was opened.

He said the claims that 50 Afghan troops were killed are absolutely wrong and the Afghan government strongly rejects the claims. Each country says the other turns a blind eye to militant sanctuaries.

The meeting, which lasted for more than two hours, also discussed other issues pertaining to the Pakistan and Afghanistan border.

"It will remain closed as long as Afghanistan does not mend its unwise way".
