A resident of the district, Ehsanullah (he goes by a single name like many Afghans), confirmed the death toll, saying the attack was carried out by Pakistani military planes.

Since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan last year, border tensions between the two countries have increased, with Pakistan claiming that armed groups, such as the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), have been carrying out attacks since Afghan soil, across a notoriously porous border.

The Afghan Taliban deny sheltering Pakistani militants and denounce the fence that Islamabad erects to secure this long border of more than 2000 kilometers, known as the Durand line, a name inherited from the colonial era.

The second assault took place in Khost province, another Afghan official said.

Pakistani helicopters bombarded four villages near the Durand line in Khost province. Only civilian homes were targeted and there were casualtieshe said on condition of anonymity, without further details.

An Afghan tribal elder in Khost, Gul Markhan, confirmed the attack.

Footage of houses destroyed in the assault was broadcast by Tolo News, Afghanistan’s main private channel.

Hundreds of civilians also demonstrated in Khost, chanting anti-Pakistani slogans, according to photographs obtained by theFrance Media Agency.

In February, six Pakistani soldiers were killed by gunfire from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan from Afghanistan.
