Pakistan vs Afghanistan: Taliban destroys barbed-wire fence on Durand Line


Despite being funded and supported by the Pakistan Army, the Afghan Taliban has steadfastly refused to accept the Durand Line which separates Afghanistan from the Pashtun-dominated regions of Pakistan.

The Taliban has destroyed the barbed wire erected by Pakistani forces on Durand Line in the Gushta district of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, local media reported.

According to Khaama Press, the barbed wire was destroyed and brought to Afghanistan after Pakistan security forces attempted to erect and widen it. 

Doctor Bashir, the provincial head of the General Directorate of Intelligence (GDI) was leading the operation in the bordering district of Gushta.

Khaama Press also said citing reports that Pakistani forces launched artilleries on Kunar province on Monday night after the incident.

Pakistan has nearly completed erecting a barbed wire fence along the entire Durand Line that stretches approximately 2,400 km between Pakistan and Afghanistan, it added.
