Tajikistan has confirmed the killing of three individuals from a “terrorist group” who infiltrated the country from neighboring Afghanistan.
Announced on September 6th by the KDAM security service, this incident marks the second occurrence of its kind this year. The three individuals made the crossing overnight on August 30th with the intention of “committing a terrorist act ahead of Tajikistan’s national holiday” on September 9th, according to a KDAM statement. Identified as Tajikistan natives, the trio was neutralized early on September 5th.
The resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan has heightened apprehensions about potential instability in Tajikistan.
