Ruzvai - Nusai border crossing (and market) reports (AF-TAJ)

Post by Christian77 »

A few days ago the Afghan Air Force bombed Taliban positions across the river from Kalaikhumb - the main stopover for those who do Khorog-Dushanbe as a two-day drive.

Story here in Russian: https://rus.ozodi.org/a/30325302.html

It says that locals on the Tajik side could feel the shockwaves.

I wouldn't worry too much - the Taliban are not about to do an amphibious assault across the river, and the Afghan air force should be able to handle bombing the correct side of the river. But I imagine this will make for a serious security presence in town.

The bridge has been closed for the last three months (as is the weekly bridge market), as the Taliban control the entire district outside of the district capital/center
