h
Body

On September 14, 2022 the security situation in the border between Batken Oblast of Kyrgyzstan and Soghd Oblast of Tajikistan rapidly deteriorated. The tension turned into armed conflict, resulting in 41 casualties and evacuation of over 20,000 thousand people (Isfara 15,850 persons, B. Gafurov 1,962 persons and in Lakhsh district of Rasht valley is 2,500 persons) residing the border areas. The Government of both countries immediately started negotiation to establish a cease fire regime, however, the clashes continued until September 16, increasing the number of casualties and internally displaced people (IDP) from both sides. As of 18 September, full ceasefire was established and IDP from J. Rasulov district, which is considered relatively safe, started returning home. Displaced people in Isfara and B. Gafurov still remain in temporary shelters.

On 19 September 2022, the protocol/agreement was signed between law enforcement authorities of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, which declares withdrawal of the troops from the border and keep only border forces. Also, it was agreed to continue negotiation to resolve the border disputes. There were a number of clashes in the past in the same border areas. As per NS statistics, since January 2022, at least 7 cases of tensions of different level were recorded. The Tajikistan NS has experience in responding to these type of events. In particular, NS supported with provision of psychosocial support, distribution of foods parcels, UXO information sessions and provision of CVA for the affected people. In line with preparedness initiative, the NS provided First Aid training for LDMC members, psychosocial support and safe behaviour support to community leaders.
