Provincial police chief, Gen. Abdul Habib Syed Khe, said at least 21 rockets were fired from the other side of Durand Line on Wednesday night.

Gen. Habib Khel further added that a 15-year-old boy was killed following the shelling.

He said the rockets landed in Dangam, Shegal, Marwara and Sarkano districts which left damaged several houses besides leaving a teenage boy dead.

Cross-border shelling in eastern Kunar province continues despite the National Security Council (NSC) instructed the security institutions to take necessary actions to repel the cross-border incursions by Pakistan.

The Pakistani military has been shelling eastern provinces of Afghanistan including Kunar and Nuristan during the recent years.

According to the local residents in Kunar and Nuristan province, dozens of people have been killed or injured following the cross-border shelling.

Tensions heightened between the two nations on several occasions over cross-border shelling, which also resulted into clashes between the Afghan and Pakistani forces last year.
