Reports confirm Pakistan’s new government under Shehbaz Sharif has carried out airstrikes inside Afghanistan using fighter jets.

According to available reports, at least two Pakistani fighter jets took flight in the early hours of Monday, March 18th, targeting various areas in the Bermel district of Paktika province.

Pakistani media have reported that “presumably” in these unexpected attacks, positions and hideouts of the Pakistani Taliban or Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have been targeted.

The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, in a statement released shortly after the attacks, confirmed the occurrence of Pakistani airstrikes inside Afghan territory and described them as “merciless.”

This quasi-militant group stated in its statement that in addition to three areas in the Bermel district of Paktika province, areas in Khost province have also been bombed.

Meanwhile, according to the sources confirmed to Khaama Press, Pakistan bombed various areas in Paktika and Khost provinces around 3:00 AM on Monday.

Details regarding potential casualties and damages from these attacks are still unclear, and the Taliban administration has not officially responded to this action by the new Pakistani government.

Local sources in Paktika province confirm that shortly after the Pakistani airstrikes, the Kharlachi border crossing was closed for traffic.

A source informed Khaama Press that following the Pakistani airstrikes, armed tensions erupted between border forces of the Afghan government led by the Taliban and Pakistan at this crossing, which continues to escalate.
