When Taliban terrorists arrived to capture one such post adjacent to Pakistan, their luck opened. Here he got 3 billion Pakistani rupees (300 crores).
According to Pakistani media Geo News, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid has accepted this by issuing a statement. The incident took place at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border crossing at Boldak in Kandahar district. According to Geo News, seeing the Talibanis coming towards them, the Afghan army left the check post and fled.
Taliban flag removed from Afghanistan flag
After capturing the post, Taliban fighters first removed the flag of Afghanistan and put up their flag. This post is considered strategically very important. From here the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan can be easily crossed. It is called Boldak-Chaman-Kandahar Road. Now it is occupied by the Taliban.

The Pakistani army has also confirmed that the Taliban has occupied the post. Afghanistan’s Defense Ministry has also issued a statement on the incident. They say that they are keeping an eye on the matter.
