The Pakistan military has recently begun installing a 12-feet-high robust fence along the almost 2,600 kilometer, largely porous Afghan border to try to block such terrorist attacks from the other side, officials say.

Two security personnel were killed and four others were injured when suspected terrorists from across the border in Kunar province of Afghanistan attacked a security check post in Mamond tehisl, along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border area, officials said. "The attempt was effectively responded killing 8-10 fleeing terrorists, while many seen running back were injured", the ISPR said in a statement.

Sepoy Raham and Captain Junaid Hafeez embraced martyrdom in the attack.

Talking about the militant hideouts in a war-torn Afghanistan, General Ghafoor said: "It now requires the elimination of terrorist sanctuaries in Afghanistan and effective Afghan border security".

Militants have crossed into Pakistan from Afghanistan and killed a Pakistani army officer and a soldier, the Pakistani military said on Monday. It is the fourth such attack on Pakistani posts from the Afghan side of the border in two months.

Pakistan military had recently cleared the area under Operation Khyber IV, one of the army operations launched to rid Pakistan of extremism.

In a press conference, Director-General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor had announced that 253 square kilometers had been cleared of militants' presence. Kabul, however, is opposed to the fencing of border which it claims is disputed.
