Afghanistan and Pakistan forces clash early Sunday near Durand line.

Afghanistan and Pakistan forces clash early Sunday near Durand line.

According to Abdul Hanan, the acting provincial police chief in the eastern Khost province, the fighting broke out early Sunday and is still underway.

Two Pakistani forces have been reportedly killed and two others arrested during the clashes.

This comes as Pakistan has fired over 1000 rockets to Kunar province earlier this week.

The two countries are separated by the 2,400-kilometer (1,500-mile) Durand Line, which was drawn by British rulers in 1896. Kabul does not recognize it as an international border and has objected to new fortifications being built by Pakistan.
