    * Afghan forces raid house of tribal elder Sadullah in Badini area close to border

    * Balochistan government informs Foreign Ministry of incident

    By Mohammad Zafar

    QUETTA: Afghan security forces raided a house inside Pakistan, kidnapped two suspected Taliban fighters and later shot them dead, sources said on Saturday.

    The incident took place in Badini area close to the Afghan border.

    “The Afghan forces raided the residence of tribal elder Sadullah Kakar and whisked away two Taliban suspects,” the sources said.

    The house is located more than a kilometre inside the Pakistani territory, they said, adding that the Afghan forces violated the borders, attacked the residence of Kakar and took with them two persons – Abdullah and Muhammad Sarwar Shabozai. Residents of the area confirmed the two people had been shot dead by Afghan forces. Officials said the Afghan authorities had not returned the bodies of the slain Pakistanis. The relatives of the victims said, however, that three people had been abducted and killed by Afghan forces. The third victim, according to them, was identified as Din Muhammad.

    Taking strong exception to the border violation, the Balochistan government has informed the Foreign Ministry about the incident. “We have convened an immediate meeting with the Quetta-based Afghan Consul General through the Foreign Ministry to discuss the incident that took place in Qilla Saifullah,” said Balochistan Home Secretary Nasebullah Bazai.

    Strong exception my foot. What about Pakistan constantly violating the border for more than a decade?

    Good job Afghans!

    Now it is time for the Afghans to show the Indian government how to catch and kill terrorist rats.

    Job well done, if true.

    Afghans should join hands with Baloch Liberation Army. Unfortunately that is very difficult bu then that would create a lot of pressure on the pakis.

    I don't see that happening anytime soon. The Baloch Nationalists have claims on large tracts of Afghan territory.

    See the dark green region:

    We have 4 parties here:
    • Baloch
    • Afghanistan
    • Pakistan
    • Iran


    They all have some disputes with each other, except for between Iran and Afghanistan.

    Yeah PM that's why I said its difficult to see it happening but if a compromise is reached between afghans and Baloch against their common enemy, it will help both of them.

    Absolutely.

    I was having a discussion with a Russian friend of mine. Her father was was deployed in Afghanistan during the Soviet-Mujahideen War. Afghans were like, one man from one tribe would tell the Soviets that there were Mujahideen hiding in a certain village and they should go and bomb them. The Soviets would simply go and bomb that village to smithereens. Often, it would turn out that the Afghan who gave the information actually had some personal scores to settle with someone in that village and there no Mujahideen at all.

    You never know. It's very complicated.

    That happens many times in Kashmir too.

    Here its not inter-tribal conflicts but personal enmity. If some one did not like other, they would just tip the sec forces that this guy was an informer to terrorist groups or he was a terrorist himself. The sec forces do the rest and then all hell breaks loose.

    Yes, it is true that often many innocents get killed, there is always more than what meets the eye.

    Then there was the tomato sauce encounter, if you heard about it.

    In the tribal areas of Pashtunkhwa, Waziristan, there are many reasons why these things happen.

    The tribal rivalry and blood feuds are paramount, and from time immemorial, money changing hands have played a great role in keeping a tab on the activities in these areas.
