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.

      Pmiri I am not sure you are Afghan as your language, stupid way of expressing views on this global media forum confirm your nationality as an Indian therefore you talk a lot against Pakistan. True Afghans understand the value of relationship with Pakistan therefore they cannot use such abusive language. Soon you will learn that Afghans and Pakistani are two brother leaving no place for stupid like you and your Masters. Wait for your day of the judgement.

        No doubt I am proud being a Pakistani but shame on you Pamiri, you forget that Afghanistan has never been an independent nation for the last two hundred years and same West first by British Empire and today US world Empire have been ruling Afghanistan. So you are born slave therefore you reject whole world except your present Masters you are praising a lot, forgetting that same Master for the last three decades constantly killing and insulting each Afghan at their door steps daily. Pamiri if you were Afghan you would never have supported invaders of your country. But I am sure Afghans now understand traitors like you and have now risen to clear Afghanistan of you SAGSHOI and your Masters.

    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😉

    I guess that through their own arrogance and self-righteousness,these NATO forces have a right to do anything they want as they seem to enjoy killing people at will no matter where they are. All this is getting quite nauseating to say the least!!!

    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 !!!!!!😀

      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.
