Pakistan customs foils bid to smuggle Afghanistan weapons

Customs officials in Pakistan intercepted an attempt to sneak a large cache of weaponry from Afghanistan at the Torkham border.

The move was launched in response to intelligence reports that a large stockpile of Russian and Turkish-made guns was being transported into Pakistan from Afghanistan in a coal-carrying container.

Customs officials in Pakistan stopped the container at the Torkham border and discovered a huge number of weapons stashed in the vehicle during the search.

The container’s Afghan driver was apprehended and turned over to local authorities for further punishment. According to the official, the firearms and explosives were intended to disrupt Pakistan’s law and order situation.

Separately, during the Chaman intelligence-based operation (IBO) on Sunday, security personnel found a large stockpile of weaponry and ammunition.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), an IBO was carried out in the general area of Rehman Kahul, Chaman to clear a suspected terrorist hideaway linked to recent terrorist incidents, including the planting of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Chaman and neighboring regions.
