Tariq Khan says Afsar Khan and his son Sher Alam were standing guard at a border post manned by members of a citizens’ militia in the Bajur tribal region when around 15 insurgents attacked them on Wednesday.

    We are in a very fluid and unstable situation, that made transition phase very hard for a ancient and togheter new terror.
    The response to give is more difficult, on consideration to necessities:
    – to make Afghanistan a free country;
    – to not disrupt results obtained.
    It is a hard provocation finalized to a return of a status quo for taliban.
    My opinion, that is a modeste and not competent opinion, is to act with more moral, human and military resilience, as the moment require.
