Peshawar [Pakistan]: At least four missiles were fired into Kurram Agency area of Pakistan from across the Afghan border on Sunday.

The Express Tribune cited officials as saying in a statement that two rockets, each fell into the Shangak and Kharplan areas, destroyed a shop completely. There was, however, no loss of life in the incident.

Last month, a suspected missile-firing U.S. drone killed two Afghan Taliban militants in a village near the Afghan border. The missile struck the two men while they were riding a motorcycle in north-western Kurram.

Earlier in February, the Pakistan Army said that it destroyed camps and a training compound of militants across the border in Afghanistan following which the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi handed over a list of 76 terrorists orchestrating terrorist activities in Pakistan from the Afghan soil.
