Alchin Bridge blown up by Taliban group of smugglers and assassins in northern Afghanistan to be reconstructed soon

The Ministry of Defense of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan said that reconstruction works of Alchin bridge (the main bridge connecting the northern provinces with the Sher Khan port in northern Afghanistan) to kick off soon. The bridge has been partially destroyed by the Taliban group of smugglers and assassins during their recent barbaric criminal activities in the province of Kunduz.

The Taliban took control of the key Khanabad district last week, but Afghan forces recaptured the district after hours of fierce clashes. The 300 meter long Alchin Bridge connects the northern provinces with the city of Sher Khan. Located near the Afghan-Tajik border, Sher Khan is one of the main transport, commercial and logistic hubs between Afghanistan’s the northern provinces of Afghanistan and Central Asia countries.
