ISIS terrorists are moving from Pakistan to Tajikistan
Earlier, Col. Gen. Andrey Novikov, the head of the Commonwealth of Independent States Anti-Terrorism Center said that ISIS terrorists were gaining a new foothold for its troops’ deployment in Afghanistan and Pakistan instead of the territories lost in Syria and Iraq.
Large number of ISIS terrorists moved from Pakistan to the border with Tajikistan, close to Russia’s southern borders, Russian Deputy Interior Minister Igor Zubov said on Monday. Pakistan and Tajikistan are separated by Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor region.
According to the Russian minister, there may be some preparations for a provocation that may affect Russia.
“ISIS fighters in massive quantities were transported from Pakistani territory to the border with Tajikistan. In that area, perhaps, the militants might stage massive provocations that would result in huge amounts of refugees fleeing the territory. This would have an impact on Russia,” Zubov said.
This comes after earlier Col. Gen. Andrey Novikov, the head of the Commonwealth of Independent States Anti-Terrorism Centre, stated that Daesh terrorists were being transported to Afghanistan and Pakistan after facing defeat in Syria and Iraq.
