On Wednesday, it was reported that seven people who were trying to sneak across the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan were stopped and didn't make it. This happened in North Waziristan, which is part of Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The Pakistani military found out about these seven people on Tuesday near Spinkai and Ghulam Khan. They were caught and after a big shootout, all seven were taken down. The military also found a bunch of weapons and bombs with them.

Pakistan has been telling the Afghan government to keep a better eye on their side of the border to stop bad guys from using it to attack Pakistan.

The military in Pakistan is really focused on keeping the country safe from terrorists and making sure the border is secure.

Just the day before, the big bosses in the military were talking about how some terrorists in Afghanistan are causing trouble for Pakistan, messing with its economy and big projects like the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Last month, there was a big fight at the border, and Pakistan even used planes and drones to hit targets in Afghanistan linked to a certain group. This led to one Pakistani officer dying and three soldiers getting hurt.

The Afghan government said that these Pakistani airstrikes killed eight people in two provinces along the border.

The Pakistani military has been saying that they have proof that terrorists in Afghanistan have been behind several attacks in Pakistan, including a big one last July and others in September, November, and December of last year.

They also said that an attack in Tank on December 15, 2023, and a really deadly explosion in Peshawar in January 2023, which killed over 80 people, were also linked to these terrorists from Afghanistan.
