Dispelling the army to kill 1,800 "Tajikistan soldiers", the Taliban has just declared war on Russia and its allies?

If the Taliban are determined to take this dangerous step, conflict with its Central Asian neighbor – and possibly Russia and its CSTO allies – is inevitable.

A few hours ago, via Twitter, "Deputy Minister of Information and Culture" of the Taliban government Zabihullah Mujahid said that the force had deployed "tens of thousands of special forces" to the Takhar province of Afghanistan, bordering with Tajikistan:

"Tens of thousands (soldiers) of special forces have been deployed in Takhar to eliminate potential security threats."

In the last two weeks, insurgents have carried out a series of devastating attacks on the Taliban in the provinces of Panjshir, Baghlan, Badakhshan and especially Takhar.

It should be noted that insurgent control of Takhar and Baghlan will form a "corridor" on the link between Tajikistan and the Afghan National Resistance Front (NRF) stronghold Panjshir - in addition to the "air bridge" established by Dushanbe. set up at the end of August.

Takhar province borders the northern part of the Panjshir valley which is currently controlled by the rebels.

Back in early September, a group of about 1,800 gunmen in Kulob (the Tajikistan town located about 30 kilometers north of Takhar) sent an open letter to the country's President, Emomali Rahmon, asking for permission to join the war against the country. Taliban in Afghanistan.

From the above news, it is very likely that the fighters who are fighting Takhar are not only the NRF but also include the Tajik group in Kulob.

And a military action by the Taliban in Takhar could be the reason for the border conflict with Tajikistan, a neighbor of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).

During the exercise near the Afghan border on July 22, Tajikistan mobilized about 230,000 troops, 47 artillery and mortars, 234 air defense complexes and 45 military aircraft - this is clearly a group of troops prepared by Dushanbe carefully for the "worst case scenario" with the Taliban.

Not to mention hundreds of thousands of CSTO troops - especially a Russian rapid intervention force at base 201 in Tajikistan with T-72B3M tanks, Mi-24 armed helicopters, Su-25 attack aircraft. ready to assist Dushanbe.
