Pakistani Shelling Kills Three In Kunar, Officials Say
[ToloNews] At least three students were killed on Thursday when Pak military cross-border shelling hit a Madrasa in the eastern province of Kunar province
... which is right down the road from Chitral. Kunar is Haqqani country.....
, local officials said.

According to officials, Pak military have once again resumed shelling on parts of Shultan district.

A front man for the provincial governor, Abdul Ghani Musamim, said that 180 missiles hit the district and one of the missiles hit a Madrasa, and three students--aged 9, 12 and 13--were killed.

...One of the more egregious mistakes of the post 9-11 era...
condemned the shelling from the Pakistain side and asked Pakistain to stop.

"The Pakistain military's repeated attacks on Kunar are acts of aggression against our soil and blatant violations of international law. I call on the government of Pakistain to stop these attacks immediately and prevent further damage to relations between the two countries, and to adopt a peaceful and civilized attitude towards Afghanistan," Karzai said in a tweet.

In May 2019 Afghanistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) summoned the charge d'affaires of Pakistain’s embassy to denounce cross-Durand Line shelling by Pak military on parts of Afghanistan.
