Profile: Tajikistan

In July 2012 Tajik soldiers attacked a rebel stronghold in the southeast of the country, apparently in retaliation for the murder of Abdullo Nazarov regional head of the regional State Committee on National Security (GKNB). The fighting was the most severe in Tajikistan for almost two years and as of concern to those Western politicians who were counting on the former Soviet state to act as a bulwark against any surge north by Islamic militants when Nato forces were due to withdraw from neighbouring Afghanistan in 2014.

Associated Press quoted a Tajik security service officer as saying that 20 soldiers had been killed in gun battles around the town of Khorog, near the border with Afghanistan. A further 42 people including 12 soldiers and 30 rebels were reported killed in fighting in the remote Tajik region of Gorno-Badakhshan. Some unconfirmed reports spoke of a far higher level of casualties, with dozens of people being killed in the violence, the ferocity of which had converted the provincial capital Khorog into a virtual war zone. The military operation was a further attempt by the Tajik government, which had little influence in the area, to bring Gorno-Badakhshan under its full control, according to the BBC.
