The Pakistan Army has destroyed four to five Afghan checkpoints, killing 50 Afghan military servicemen at the border, Lieutenant General Amir Riaz said on Sunday.
“Anyone who tries to make Pakistan’s territory disputed will face similar consequences,” he told journalists during a press conference in Chaman.
The Pakistan side also confirmed that two Pakistan military servicemen were killed in clashes.
The Pakistan-Afghan border is now closed.
Pakistani and Afghan forces have been clashing at the Chaman border crossing in southwestern Baluchistan province since Friday.
Pakistan argues that the clashes erputed when Afgan security forces opened a fire at Pakistan census workers and the troops escorting them, allegedly killing nine civilians.
In turn, Afganistan says that Pakistan provoked the escalation.
