Clashes broke out between the Taliban and the Pakistani military on the border.

Clashes between the forces of the Taliban movement and the Pakistani military took place on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan, Tolo News reported, citing a representative of the 203rd Corps of Afghan troops.

According to him, the clashes occurred along the Durand line (the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan not recognized by Kabul) in the Dand-e-Patan district in Paktia province.

Last week it was reported that the conflict took place between the Taliban and the Pakistani military at the border crossing in the Spin Boldak area on the Afghan-Pakistani border, no one was injured.

In early August 2021, the Taliban stepped up their offensive against the Afghan government forces, entered Kabul on August 15, and the next day declared that the war was over. The last two weeks of August, from the Kabul airport, which was under the protection of the US military, there was a mass evacuation of citizens of Western countries and Afghans who collaborated with them. On the night of August 31, the US military left the Kabul airport, ending nearly 20 years of US military presence in Afghanistan. In early September, the composition of the interim government of Afghanistan was announced, which was headed by Mohammad Hassan Akhund, who served as foreign minister during the first Taliban rule and has been under UN sanctions since 2001.
