ANDF was unable to hold their posts along the Pak-Afghan border, sought safe passage and refuge in Pakistan

Another group of Afghan military personnel have been given refuge by the Pakistan Army after the Afghans were 'unable to hold their military posts' on the Pak-Afghan border due to the evolving security situation, said a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

“Afghan National Army (ANA) local commander, opposite Arundu Sector, Chitral requested Pakistan Army for refuge and safe passage for 46 soldiers of Afghan National Army and Border Police including 5 officers,” said the ISPR on Monday.

The ISPR added that the Pakistan Army contacted Afghan authorities for information and necessary formalities after which the soldiers and officers were given refuge and safe passage into Pakistan

“Afghan soldiers have been provided food, shelter and necessary medical care as per established military norm,” the military’s media wing stated, adding that the military personnel would be returned to Afghan authorities in a dignified manner after due process.

Previously on July 1, at least 35 Afghan soldiers also requested the Pakistan Army for refuge due to inability to hold their military post along the international border.

They were also given safe passage into Pakistan and handed over to Afghan government authorities after the due procedure,.

Earlier, the Afghan government said the Taliban's claim of holding 90 per cent of Afghanistan's border was an "absolute lie" with the defence ministry insisting that government forces were in control of the country's frontiers.

"It is baseless propaganda," deputy spokesman of the Ministry of Defence Fawad Aman told AFP, a day after the insurgents made the claim, which was not possible to independently verify.

The Taliban's claim came after the group captured key border crossings with Iran, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Pakistan in recent weeks in a staggering offensive launched as US-led foreign forces began their final troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Pakistan Army grants refuge, safe passage to 46 Afghan soldiers at Chitral border: ISPR

Forty-six soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) and Border Police were granted "refuge and safe passage" by the Pakistan Army on Sunday, according to an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement.

The statement said that a local ANA commander opposite Arundu, Chitral, had requested help for the 46 soldiers — including five officers — as "they were unable to hold their military posts along [the] Pak-Afghan International Border due to [the] evolving security situation in Afghanistan."

The Pakistan Army contacted Afghan authorities for the relevant information and necessary formalities, the statement added.

"These Afghan soldiers arrived at Arundu sector, Chitral late last night. After contact with Afghan authorities and necessary military procedures, 46 soldiers including five officers have been given refuge [and] safe passage into Pakistan.

"Afghan soldiers have been provided food, shelter and necessary medical care as per established military norms," the ISPR statement said.

It added that the soldiers and officers would be returned to the Afghan government in a "dignified manner after due process".

Mentioning a similar incident, the ISPR statement said 35 Afghan soldiers who had asked for refuge on July 1 had also been "given safe passage into Pakistan and handed over to Afghan govt authorities after due procedure".

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed had previously told Dawn that Pakistan has moved the Frontier Constabulary, Levies Force and other militias from the front line positions along the Pak-Afghan border as the army has started to man those positions.

“Now regular army troops are manning the border after replacing the paramilitary forces,” the minister said, adding the decision had been made in wake of the volatile situation across the border. "The current volatile situation (in Afghanistan) demands that regular military troops be deployed along the border," he had said.

Earlier in July, more than 1,000 Afghan security personnel fled across the border into Tajikistan following Taliban advances in northern Afghanistan. The Taliban had taken over six key districts in the northern province of Badakshan, which borders both Tajikistan and China, following which 1,037 Afghan servicemen fled across the border with Tajikistan's permission.

Agree with you that we should have made pictures/videos because the likes of Mohib and Amarullah showed be shown such visuals. I know these guys are shameless people but such visuals are indeed very important.

Good that you bring up the Geneva Convention. Pak army is constantly under a propaganda barrage from Indian/US media outlets and does not want to give any fodder to hostile entities, especially where the gain is low. We have already seen how the CNN and other US media outlets have been manipulating and spreading false information about the "commandoes" who were apparently killed by the Taliban. If they catch even a scent of something they can manipulate to expand their propaganda war, they will do it.

On the other hand it would not surprise me if these refuges (not only in Pakistan but also in other neighboring countries like Iran and Tajikistan) are taking place with the tacit approval of the Taliban. The Taliban seemed to have learnt some lessons from last time and seem intent on winning the hearts of the Afghans. Human rights abuses are minimal and ANA soldiers are defecting to the other side. Their strategy is seemingly focused on breaking the ANA from within. Massacring isolated soldiers stuck at a border post without any support would not serve this image well.
