Afghanistan had claimed earlier this week that its forces were fired on in the Goshta district of Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, the same place where a firefight between Afghan and Pakistani forces left an Afghan border policeman dead and two Pakistani soldiers wounded last week. Relations between the two neighbors have been severely strained between the two sides over the demarcation of their border.
