Since the onset of Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021, the Taliban-affiliated militants have conducted 26 clashes with Afghanistan neighbors. The armed conflicts have resulted in the death and injury of dozens of civilians as well as border guards from Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and other neighboring countries.

The main root cause of the Taliban’s border clashes with Afghanistan’s neighbors is that the Taliban militants possess insufficient know-how regarding international border laws and regulations. More importantly, the Taliban rulers do not make any effort to prevent tensions with their neighbor states!

Afghanistan is a landlocked country, which does not have any access to free waters. And the prelude to the establishment of stability and security in such a region is cooperation with neighboring states in order to create appropriate condition for economic and political growth along with issues such as security and stability.

Unfortunately, following five decades of conflict and bloodshed in Afghanistan, the country is still involved in ethnic clashes as well as pursuit of self-interest by powerful individuals and one-dimensional governments. Hence, it can be predicted that the war-torn country has not yet entered a period of stability; so, the second Taliban regime is expected to end up in the fate of previous Afghan governments if it continue the past trend.

The Taliban militants’ border clashes created an environment of insecurity, which extended smuggling and strengthened terrorist groups’ activities in Afghanistan’s border lines more than ever, and this trend is expected to accelerate the Taliban’s downfall. In such circumstances, coordination and the way that Afghanistan’s neighboring states face the Taliban rulers, would play a significant role…

The Taliban militants embarked on at least 26 border clashes with Afghanistan’s neighboring states since their takeover of the war-stricken country in 2021. Of the total number of border clashes, some 11 cases occurred on the border with Iran, 11 others on joint border with Pakistan, two conflicts on the border with Tajikistan, two others on joint borderline with Uzbekistan and the last one on the border with Turkmenistan.

why does this article fail to mention that taliban is a project of pakistan, through its madrasas? it was founded by pakistan to colonize afghanistan. well, its real backers are the west as they feared anti-west tajik government. remember the taliban are a ticking bomb for russia, too.
since the taliban were put to power i have seen multiple videos of terrorist groups training in afghanistan, some are anti-russian chechens or central asians. just look for taliban nasheed or chechen nasheed.

today there are three main allies of the taliban which help and control them through their intelligence services: usa, pakistan and china.
