Afghan militant shell kills 7 from same family in Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — At least seven members of the same Pakistani family were killed Sunday when their home was hit by a mortar round fired from across the border in Afghanistan by suspected militants, Pakistani police said.

Four children, two women and a man were killed in Bajur district, once a Taliban stronghold inside Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, according to local police official, Shahab-ud- Din. He said other civilians were also wounded.

Police and local officials provided no further details on the shelling. Police gave the name of the owner of the home that was struck, but did not say if he was among the casualties or if he was present at the time of the attack. Authorities said an investigation was underway.

Pakistan’s militant groups are often interlinked with those across the border in Afghanistan, and Bajur district was once a haven for Taliban insurgents. Pakistan says the army has cleared the area in recent years, although violence persists. Militants who were not killed have mostly fled across the rugged mountains into neighboring Afghanistan.

Terror attacks in Pakistan plummeted by more than 85% over the last decade, from nearly 2,000 in 2009 to fewer than 250 in 2019, according to a tally put together by Pakistani think tanks. The steady decline underscores the long-haul nature of fighting terror.

Pakistan’s success in tackling terror is essential amid American attempts to wind down the war in Afghanistan and withdraw U.S. troops.

Hopefully the fence and border posts are completed soon. Small counter battery radars (to detect anything coming over the border by air; mortar, uav, etc) should be at a number of these bases, and Pakistani troops should be allowed to return fire with their own 120 mm mortars.

Considering the experience gained at the LOC, Pakistani troops should be able to engage the miscreants without hitting civilians.

If miscreants move quickly away from their firing position, loitering kamikaze drones should be on hand to take out the enemy forces. loitering munitions could just be RC models modified, they don't need to be very expensive systems.

I might Sound Harsh but Nothing will be done against belove Afghan Brothers of Pakistan.
They have a free license to harm Pakistani property & Citizens & It was just some random Pakistani lives were lost, Military nor with Political powers care, and nothing much will be done.

An Israeli general once said about the attacks on Palestinians that why do you bomb the Palestinians every now and again.
He replied by saying that they cut the grass.
To this he explained that when you now the lawn it's all lovely and smooth. But after a while when the grass and weeds grow again then it's time to mow the lawn again. And this cycle gets repeated every time the weeds and the grass grow again. The Jews like a tidy lawn.
Pakistan needs to mow the lawn it's the best way to get rid of the weeds

I might Sound Harsh but Nothing will be done against belove Afghan Brothers of Pakistan.

I agree percent. Unfortunately our pm is a pacifist
And because of his heritage he is unwilling to do anything. You can't blame the armed forces because they can't act without the PM's nodd. If they did act without the PM's nodd then the majority of Pakistanis would cry "martial law" and the military would need to remove the incumbent political leadership.
Now personally I think that would be a good idea. But the rest of the world wouldn't like it.
The politicians are trying to get the economy back on track and if the military act unilaterally then politically Pakistan would be isolated in the world . The economy would suffer even more and endia would have a field day.
But I think if PM sahib was not such a pacifist we can still get on with politics and still kick the sh*t out of the scum from over the border.
