The Afghan National Defense and Security Forces killed a Pakistani terrorist and one of his accomplices during an operation in South-eastern Paktiya province.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) in a statement said the security forces killed the terrorists during a raid in Samkanai district of Pakitya.

MoD also released the National Identity Card of the slain Pakistani terrorist who has been identified as Jawad Ali.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented in this regard so far.

Paktiya is among the relatively volatile provinces in South-eastern parts of country, bordering the porous regions along Durand Line. Both Taliban and al Qaeda are active in some remote regions of the province.
