Second attack on Pakistani border guards from Afghanistan in four days

15

Pakistan has reported the second incident in a week near the Afghan border. According to the latest information, a group of unidentified persons, having crossed into the Pakistani province of Baluchistan from Afghan territory, attacked the checkpoint, which was occupied by border guards and military personnel of the Pakistani armed forces.


Three Pakistani border guards are known to have died as a result of the attack. The presence of the wounded is also reported. Their number is not disclosed at the moment.

The attack took place in the Marat area, which is considered a relatively calm area in restive Baluchistan due to the presence of large numbers of military personnel and representatives of the Pakistani border service. The shelling of the checkpoint was carried out in the late evening. At the same time, none of the attackers was hurt, all of them (and we are talking about at least three) managed to escape.

The search special operation has not yet led to their capture or destruction. The Marat area is cordoned off by the police and the military.

Four days earlier, militants from Afghanistan opened fire on Pakistani border servicemen patrolling the border strip. The shelling resulted in the death of four servicemen.

Pakistani believes that the activation of militants in Afghanistan may be associated with the withdrawal of NATO troops from this country. Against this background, the degree of the so-called Baluchistani separatism may rise again. Baluchistan is a Pakistani province in which certain forces are in favor of complete independence from Islamabad. Armed clashes and conflicts in this Pakistani region have erupted in fact since the founding of the state itself.

      For so many years Pakistan has supported all these mujahideen (especially under Najibul), now it was the packs' turn to test the fed animal on themselves.

        Not only supported: there were militant training camps on its territory. There have been cases of the participation of the Pakistani armed forces on the side of the militants.
        Therefore, when the evil fed by them returned to them, personally, I not only do not sympathize, but even makes me happy.

      Or maybe they are heating up the situation in this region in order to find a reason not to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan.

        Yes, they do not need a special reason. For the second week already, their media have been writing about the kneeling allies begging them to postpone the withdrawal of troops.

          The allies, or rather the vassals, will write what they are told, but they cannot indicate to the Afghans, but they have their own opinion on the withdrawal of troops.

        Or to transfer to Pakistan, because the damp dreams of transferring our troops from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan or Kazakhstan did not come true

      The US withdrawal from Afghanistan is understandable in view of the uselessness of their presence there.
      But the very background of the "withdrawal of US and NATO troops" from the country makes all radicals and those who like to fish in troubled waters in Afghanistan more resolute. How long will the puppet government last in Kabul? Maybe a day, maybe an hour since the last BTA aircraft took off for the USA or the nearest bases.
      In this case, the United States retains all the levers and connections to resume the activities of the Alkaida network in order to keep the entire region and neighboring countries in suspense as before (in proxy mode). When something like this gets trampled into Tabzhikistan and Kyrgyzstan, then the problem will become more visible for us.

      According to Freud, the "animal essence" sleeps inside each person. When hard times come, society is divided into people and bandits. They can call themselves whatever they want, shout religious slogans, but this does not change the essence - they are bandits, immoral people to be destroyed. To negotiate with them or with a pack of jackals is the same thing.

    Yes, never, since prehistoric times there was no border! Mountains, a sea of ​​nationalities, tribes. We decided to build a border. There were many states in this area, Persians, Ottomans, etc., but the natural border is the valley of the Indus River. Powerful Great Britain somehow tried to move the border away from "its" India, but after the collapse of the empire, the artificially organized Pakistan is unable to control the situation. It already has enough problems with India. hi

    Pakistan once helped the Mujahideen, now they have returned to say "many thanks" to their benefactors. In general, nothing "is new under the moon." Mattress toppers raised bin Laden and received on September 11th - everything is back to normal.

    I think these are American provocations. They wanted to withdraw their troops to Tajikistan or Uzbekistan. The Tajiks have already shaved them, the Uzbeks will do the same, and Kazakhstan will most likely also refuse. Americans arrange provocations on the border with Pakistan, then offer Pakistan protection and withdraw their troops from Afghanistan to Pakistan. Bingo
