According to reports, the Pakistani military has fired over 5,000 rockets in Kunar province during the past two years.

Tribal elders from 14 different districts of Kunar province recently gathered in Asadabad along with a number of religious clerics to discuss the issue of Pakistani shelling and interference in Afghanistan.

The elders called for an immediate halt to the shelling and warned to uprise if the Pakistani military continued to cross-border shelling.
