KABUL: Taliban security forces have stopped the Pakistani military from fencing part of the Durand Line in southwestern Nimroz province of Afghanistan.
Pakistani military on Thursday was planning the installation of a fence on Durand Line in the Chaharboluk district’s Dak locality.
Pakistani forces entered 10 to 15 meters inside Afghanistan territory and were planning the establishment of a military base and erect a fence which was thwarted by Taliban security personnel, the report said.
This is not the first time Taliban thwart Pakistan’s fencing bid. Last Friday, Taliban soldiers also disrupted the erecting of a security fence by Pakistani military at the international border between the two countries, said Afghan officials. This comes after a circulated video showed Taliban soldiers seizing a spool of concertina wire and warning Pakistani officials against fencing the border. Despite objections by Kabul, Pakistan has fenced 90% of the border.
