The commander of border police in Paktika, General Mohammad Naim Abdul Rahimzai said “Pakistanis attacked my soldiers in the border. They fire mortars on our officers. I showed the coalition troops the mortar shell fired up on us by Pakistanis.”
Meanwhile, the Paktika governor complaints from the shortage of police personnel in the province.
