DUSHANBE, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - - Militants of illegal armed formations in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAR) continue surrendering weapons. By Monday’s morning, a total of 16 pieces of firearms, including machine-guns, mortars and sharp-shooting rifles, were surrendered.
Governmental forces began a special operation in the regional center of Khorog and its suburbs on July 24 after the murder of General Abdullo Nazarov and the refusal of leaders of illegal armed formation to disarm and give away the murders. Later on, a moratorium on the holding combat actions, which was observed by both sides, was introduced, a representative of the Tajik Secret Services told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“The weapons surrender process is going on slowly, however, the local authorities, holding talks through mediators, try to convince former field commanders of the opposition that the dragging out of this process will only lead to an escalation of tension and other negative consequences,” the source stressed. He added that, according to the preliminary investigation, supporters of one of the leaders of Tolib Aembekov’s grouping bear a relation to the murder of the general of Tajik Secret Services.
All in all, according to the General Prosecutor’s Office of Tajikistan, four such illegal formations, which are involved in dozens of crimes - - murders, trade and transportation of drugs, and attacks on law enforcers - - operate in the GBAR.
