Taliban captured river port on the border with Tajikistan

50
Militants of the Taliban movement banned in Russia reached the Tajik border by capturing the Afghan river port of Aykhanum, located at the confluence of the Amudarya and Kokchi rivers. The attack took place on Saturday night, local media reported, citing a statement from the administration of the northeastern Afghan province of Takhar.

Taliban captured river port on the border with Tajikistan




During the attack, according to the information received, the militants killed two border police officers, injured two more border guards, and captured five soldiers. In addition, during the attack militants were burned army SUV Humvee, army armored vehicle (brand not specified) and two police car Ranger.

Against this background, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said that the truce with the radical Taliban movement banned in Russia is over, adding that now the beginning of the peace process depends only on the leadership of the Taliban, as the government of Afghanistan will continue to support a peaceful settlement in the country.

It should be recalled that the Government of Afghanistan had unilaterally announced a cease-fire from June 12 to June 19 in connection with the celebration of the end of the Ramadan festival, which was then extended to June 29. At the same time, the Taliban leadership supported only a three-day truce on June 15-17 and did not promise to further cease hostilities.

      Just with the Taliban, the drug was better; the Americans had already bred the drug on a large scale on a par with the locals. They kind of like potatoes among Belarusians.
      I think that it was precisely under the Taliban that peace would reign in Afghanistan and that drugs would become illegal.

      The essence is not a port, but a settlement with a port and berthing facilities. In fact, they went to the border of Tajikistan. This is gdavnoe.
      I don’t know how nowbut in Soviet times, locals living on both sides of the river went to visit a friend. Bo the border drawn by the river was divided into two families. Very often there, villages are located on both sides of the river. That is, before it was one village cut by a river.
      Freedom of crossing was fastened after the entry of Soviet troops into Afghanistan. But they just screwed it on. The border there has never been locked.

      the authorities themselves are to blame.
      A truce was concluded with the Taliban. And on the holiday of Kurban Bayram, the President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani made a gift to the people of Afghanistan - he announced the end of the truce with the radical Taliban movement. None other than the American advisers advised.
      The answer was not long in coming.
      The gain is neither power nor the Taliban - but as always mattresses

      Well, maybe it would be easier for Voentorg to supply anything to fight democracy? As an option. It's time to recognize the Taliban. He from the movement of Islamic fanatics, world caliphates has long become an ordinary national liberation body. He regularly kills American and barmaley. And under the Taliban, poppy fields were declining all the time. Unlike.

    If I’m not mistaken, the United States has been stubbornly and fruitfully fighting the Taliban for 17 years, but the result? In addition to protecting themselves and poppy plantations, the results are not visible. And in 1980, all "progressive and democratic" mankind boycotted the Olympics in Moscow, while starting deliveries of MANPADS to Mujahideen. Kukryniksy were right

    It is quite expected. Karl Marx would say a redistribution of spheres of influence, the struggle for territory. Lenin would say the struggle for markets, raw materials, cash flows. You can’t fight poppy fields, will famine come? And that poppy does not have a natural biological pest or plant that will squeeze it? I do not think that the Taliban do not profit from drug trafficking, otherwise they exist. Why not try a third force from the neighboring territory to minimize poppy by means harmless to people and insects. I do not believe that nothing was developed in the USSR. Well, for now ...

    Well, not everything is as sad as you say. Local border guards bring down even local fishermen who accidentally went to the wrong place. There were a lot of incidents with deaths, relatives of the victims tried to sue the border guards, but of course they were sent. This section of the border is under special attention. our border guards and FSKN are there, monitoring the border around the clock from UAV air, plus during the day the Mi-24th in the air with the reconnaissance group on board makes overflights. One BTGr 201 is always also near the border under the guise of exercises. The Kyrgyz border is an open courtyard I don’t argue about it, I don’t have ice in the Gorno-Badakhshan region either. And on the account of the news, it’s nonsense, the port was several thousand years ago, in those days it was destroyed. Anyone who wants can look at the map.
