Taliban attacked Turkmenistan border guards, three border guards killed, two wounded



Militants of the Taliban movement attacked the outfit of the border troops of Turkmenistan, killing three Turkmen border guards, Bagdis province spokesman Mirvais Mirzakval told Bakhtar.

It was reported that the Taliban crossed the border in the Mukur area on Wednesday night and attacked the border guard. According to the Afghan side, two more border troops of Turkmenistan were injured.

It is reported that the attack was carried out under the leadership of commanders Abdullo and Ahmad. The agency notes that this is the first attack of the Taliban on the borders of neighboring countries.

Representatives of the consulate of Turkmenistan confirmed this message, the agency Khaama Press notes. The Taliban have not yet given their comments on this incident.

      It seems that the outfit simply did not have time to warn about the passage of a caravan of drugs. So they came under the distribution.
      This is practiced in Tajikistan: when a caravan comes from Afghanistan, the outfits of Tajik border guards are removed from this section. But if you didn’t have time, or if the alert chain did not work, then - a short clash with the elimination of random witnesses.
      In the east, after the collapse of the USSR and the withdrawal of our border guards, much has changed .....

      Probing the soil bastards. Reconnaissance in battle. You can’t let it go like that on brakes, you need intelligence on the next planned attacks and they will set up ambushes, cut such groups to the root at the approaches to the border. When the 5-6 groups lose their uselessness in full - the evil heads may become cold.
      IMHO, Turkmenistan urgently needs to deliver a couple of shock UAVs, to patrol the border, they found the bearded - a bomb on their heads that they would forget to approach the border for several kilometers.

        Really. This is nothing more than reconnaissance in battle. It seems that with the supply of US-NATO intelligence, tk. the country - the target of the attack has no alliances, and Russia is not their guardian. Soon we are waiting for massive attacks on countries bordering Afghanistan. Kyrgyzstan is thoughtful and now we are strengthening them.
        Such skirmishes are the first swallows. If the Taliban make peace with Pakistan, then the Pakistanis, as in the 80's, will become their reliable rear and supply base, behind which the United States and NATO will be. If the Russians do not climb into Afghanistan, then Afghanistan will climb to them, and Tajik-Uzbek-Turkmen-Kyrgyz, with their police armies, will be crushed by the mass if we do not help. The time has come for weapons, the time when new generations have forgotten the horrors of past wars, the time of muscle games and the time when we learn about such terrible things that previously were considered simply impossible. The world hegemon will do anything to remain not a loser.

            laughing It is when? Then, when in Kyrgyzstan only one helicopter remained from the Soviet army, the rest were taken away for scrap metal and two hundred militants came on foot, but the then President Akayev, who promised to build an "Asian Switzerland"? Or when Russia gave old Soviet tanks to pandsher militants from warehouses, and even numbers did not paint over the times of the USSR?

          It is secondary who, maybe Russia.
          Consider the most budget option, take the “Outpost” UAV (they are assembled on the Kazan helicopter), it has 100 kg payload and 15-18h fly. We reduce on-board equipment to navigation, a thermal imager and a laser rangefinder, hang 2 high-explosive mortar mines with an electric plow of 20 kg on it and add bombing ballistics to the on-board software (with an aim bar on the operator’s screen).
          The main thing here is not the damage done, but the psychological component, having received an armful of corpses several times, the bearded will develop a reflex, like Pavlov’s dog — he came closer to the border than necessary — a mine fell on his head, even the most frostbitten and fanatical ones demoralize it. The main methodology is that they would believe in the inevitable consequences.

            Good advice and the apparatus would also work like that, but there’s something in no hurry to adopt practical experience and equip our border guards with such equipment.
            It’s better to swallow money for a bad ... Olympics than for normal border guards.
            It's a shame for the state, by golly.
            As there were races ... and remained nothing has changed.

      I agree with your doubts. The Taliban haven’t done it yet with the Americans, and they’ve got to the bottom of the Tajiks, risking, besides the Americans, drawing more Russians on their heads laughing And they know the Russians - and are not particularly eager to meet them again in battle, despite their heroic rhetoric. Who in their right mind would do that? Either a complete one based on Dostoevsky's novel, or - a provocation, NATO special forces disguised as Taliban carried out a special operation. All this is muddy ... And sad. And most importantly, the defender always loses. The best defense is offense. Russia and its leader Putin will have to rethink their tactics from passive defense to active action. In the hard-to-reach places of the Rocky Mountains and the Cordilleras, militant groups should appear "for the secession of Texas and California," "for freedom of religion in the United States," and so on. The militants have an incomprehensible accent, similar to the accent of Tsarnaev, terrible for the Americans. Something like this. Then they will leave alone. And so - injected in Syria. They fought back - they hit from the side of Ukraine. Fought back - went messy from Afghanistan. I think - if Russia does not catch up a little - and it will lose. If he doesn’t decide on a normal defense - which is an attack.

          - Well, we have "Kara-Major", the commander of the "Muslim battalion" not only famous in Afghanistan, has already begun to advise the corresponding Kazakhstani unit being created. wink
          So everything is going according to plan. If it’s the Taliban, it won’t seem to them a little, if the NATO special forces are provocative, it’s worse for them.

    Probably something serious was dragged across the border once they started such an operation, but more likely they ensured someone’s passage and distracted attention.
    Against the background of Ukraine, little attention is paid to information in Asia, but in vain, it is there that you need to look first and foremost, it is from there that the most unwanted guests can get to Russia.
    I think so because there is the longest and most vulnerable section of our border in terms of protection and we need to look very closely at it.

    That's right. The offensive against Russia is coming from all sides. Perhaps this is not the only raid. They will still be. You can wait everywhere. Under the cover of what is happening in Ukraine, a consistent probe is beginning to the reaction of Russia. The West and the USA are trying, in agony, to pull our forces around theater, Turkmenistan, although far away, but the danger is great. The mattresses and their satellites already see that the soil is leaving under them. With Ukraine, it’s not as they calculated. But it’s not for nothing that all the latest weapons came and goes to our troops, namely stationed in the southwest.
