The officials further added at least 12 missiles were fired in Sarkano district, leaving an Afghan woman dead and 3 children injured.
A commander for the Afghan border protection forces Wali Khan said the missiles were fired on Monady by Pakistani military from the Momand Agency area.
Local officials are saying at least 60 people have been killed or injured following missiles attacks by Pakistan military during the past 9 months.
Cross-border shelling has heightened tension between Pakistan and Afghanistan as the two countries accuse each other of firing.
The Afghan government has repeatedly asked its Pakistani counterpart to stop cross-border shelling, the Pakistani officials however denies any involvement and blames Afghanistan for violating border sovereignty.
Pakistani officials earlier in December said a tribesman was killed and three others injured after mortar shells were fired in Dandi Kach area of Speen Waam tehsil from Afghanistan soil.
