Shooting At Pakistan-Afghanistan Border Kills Three, Injures 17

"To de-escalate the situation, the Pakistani side immediately activated both military and diplomatic channels and it was after hectic efforts that the firing was stopped from the Afghan side", it said.

"We hope our constructive efforts will be reciprocated", she added.

Three people were killed in clashes after angry protesters burnt down a quarantine centert for corona virus patients destroying nearly 1,000 tents, computer rooms of Nadra office and then forcibly crossed the border into Afghanistan.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told reporters that the matter had been taken up with Afghan authorities and hoped it would be resolved amicably.

Earlier, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said that the violent clashes occurred after the government put a stop to smuggling. Pakistan closed its borders with Afghanistan due to Covid.

He said Pakistan showed "reaction" after Afghan forces targeted border posts on this side of the worldwide border.

Relations have been tense between the two countries for years, with Afghan officials accusing Pakistan of harboring militants who carry out attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan claiming Afghanistan backs militants opposed to the government in Islamabad.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the Faraz said that the borders of Torkham, Ghulam Khan, and Angor Ada were closed on account of Eid and in the light of the prevalent situation of coronavirus. "The government intensified the SOPs implementation drive along the borders to keep them safe in line with best global practices".

The most concerning diagnosis is myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, which can lead to scarring of the heart, Kim said. It is also unclear whether these post-COVID-19 cardiovascular effects are permanent or have long-term health consequences.

"About 3,000 people used to come and go from the border every day", Faraz said.

They exchanged fire when crowds waiting to cross into Afghanistan became unruly and attacked Pakistani installations, a Pakistani official said. Balochistan's home minister Zia Langove visited the Chaman border on Friday and condemned the incidents of violence.

Additional troops of the Frontier Corps and Levies were also summoned to quell the protest.

Medical Superintendent of the DHQ hospital where the injured including three Lavies personnel were shifted described the condition of most of the wounded people as very serious.

In a statement on Friday, FO Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said Afghan forces had "deliberately targeted" people gathered to cross the border on the occasion of Eidul Azha, which is being celebrated in Afghanistan on Friday (today), due to "incomprehensible reasons".

ANP, a coalition party in the Balochistan government, held protests all over the province against the tragic incident at the Pak-Afghan border, calling for an inquiry and bringing all responsible to justice.

According to police, the protesters, backed by the Pashtun Protection Movement, known for its criticism of the Pakistani army, stormed a border checkpoint. This prompted clashes which resulted in the death of three people and injuries to 20 others.

Furthermore, they had allegedly set fire to computers at a National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) office for border management, about 100 containers belonging to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) as well as tents and offices at a quarantine centre nearby.
