Media: Afghan border guard who went over to the Taliban, shot his fellow soldiers


A representative of the Kandahar Province, Samin Hapalvak, told the agency that "the incident occurred last night." "After the incident, the Afghan border guard crossed the border and fled to Pakistan."

According to him, this happened after the Taliban announced the start of their “spring offensive”.

In turn, a source in the border guard reported the death of 7-mi soldiers. He clarified that "the murderer had gone over to the side of the Taliban and is now hiding from them." The interviewee also noted that the Taliban does not confirm this information.

According to the agency, "the Taliban called their spring action" Operation Omari "in honor of their deceased leader, Mullah Omar."

It is noted that killings in the security forces of Afghanistan are not uncommon. "In some cases, these crimes may occur on the basis of personal conflicts, but often they are committed by extremists," the agency concludes.

    The Taliban have announced an attack on the US Armed Forces in Afghanistan. Anything about this already on the net? And these colleagues are not the case of the Americans?

        And who are there and for someone their own? The Pashtuns are not friendly with the tribes either, + Uzbeks (they are not friendly with their families, and with foreigners they are not at all in a warm relationship), plus Tajiks and all the rest. They are ready to shoot at a colleague - almost like tribes and clans in Libya.

    Pff, also news to me. From the memories of those who fought in Afghanistan, this happened very often. And now even more so, this can be taken as a regularity.
