Officials: NATO clashes with Pakistani troops

Tensions mounted Tuesday when NATO helicopters flying in eastern Afghanistan fired across the border into Pakistan after being fired on twice, according to a NATO official.

NATO's International Security Assistance Force later received reports that two Pakistani soldiers were wounded.

Two coalition helicopters supporting operations at U.S. Forward Operating Base Tillman in Afghanistan were fired upon from the Pakistani side of the border, said the NATO official, who did not want to be identified because the information has not yet been released publicly. After being fired upon a second time, the helicopters returned fire, the official said.

    These kinds of incedents are very common in wars. During Iran Iraq war an american military ship was hit by the iraqi with 37 sailors dead.

    It is good news for those who dislike insurgency and terrorism that the USA is going to started or at least attacked on those Pakistani military, who were shooting some missiles toward Afghanistan, well done Nato forces, it is up to all the world leading by Nato to at least destroy all the Taliban Alqaeda Sanctuaries in both country AFG_PAK, which they are existing like cancers and very red threat for all humanity.

    The peace process is good thing, but you should know Taliban and Alqaeda are not the people to whom you can make peace, because, likely peace would be happened between two parties at least if there is some common opinion, and understanding and we know better that The Taliban Alqaeda have no give worth for any thing , except killing and destruction they do no know any thing else, still they are like wild animal and they have no mind to think rationally,

        salerno, you should understand that Peshawor and some other areas belongs to Afghanistan 😉
        We did sign an agreement with Pakistan ages ago and that agreement already expired.

        We want our land back which is 35-40% of Pakistan and it will definitely happen that's why Pakistan is creating problems in Afghanistan, once we are stable, we will go after Pakistan to return land which we borrowed them 😉

    hahaha I can't stop laughing at weak Pakistani tricks.
    They are keep trying and trying to fake everything and misguide USA and Afghan Government.

    I don't know about USA but Afghanistan is recovered and 90% stabilized and I don't think Pakistan can play game in Afghanistan anymore, Pakistan Government words are on blacklist of Afghan Government, even if Pakistan tell the truth to Afghan Government, Afghan government will take it as a joke or ignore it completely.

    Now Pakistan is a joke to the world, if Mullah Omar travel to Afghanistan today, he will be dead within 24 hours no matter what.

    I feel pity for Mullah Omar and other Taliban leaders, now they are hiding like mouse and thinking every second when they will die and i am very proud of my Government/ANA/ANP.

    Please kill every single Taliban if any of them come near to Afghanistan Border or try to cross the border, indeed kill any Pakistani or Irani if they try to come near our border!!!!! Kill all stupid Pakistani and Irani Terrorists.

    Pakistan been free for the past 60+ years and Afghanistan only 10 years, right now Afghanistan is 50 times more peaceful than Pakistan.

    Salute Afghanistan and Love You !!!!!! 😀

      Yaakobi if I were you I would stop talking, plotting or hoping to kill others and worry about the truth that you will say on judgment day.

      Yes, the resident troll makes it difficult, if not impossible, to understand his disjointed ramblings ON PURPOSE for some bizarre reason.

      I just skip his posts and read the other better written ones that just MIGHT have lucid, if not valid, points.
