According to ISPR, the troops were carrying out routine surveillance in Kurram Agency for plugging of gaps and making necessary preparations to start fencing along Afghan border.

Two Pakistani soldiers were martyred in cross-border fire from Afghanistan while working on a fence meant to cover almost the entire disputed 2,500km border separating the countries, the Pakistan Army said Sunday.

Soon after the attack, announcements were made through mosques' loudspeakers in various villages, situated along the Pak-Afghan border.

At least one Afghan civilian and two Pakistani security forces were killed in the clash, said Abdul Hanan Zadran, acting police chief for Afghanistan's eastern province of Khost.

Afghanistan and Pakistan share a 2,430-kilometer (1,510-mile) long disputed border region called the Durand Line, named after the British colonial officer Sir Mortimer Durand who drew it between the then British India and Afghanistan in 1896. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation".

Khost provincial governor spokesman Talib Mangal confirmed the incident, but said two Afghan civilians and four Pakistani troops were killed. It was once an ideal point for militants to move across the border in the past.
