Taliban destroy border fences with Afghanistan in push for Pashtun unification

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Taliban destroy border fences with Afghanistan in push for Pashtun unification” – below is their description.

The Taliban have torn down parts of erected fencing on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

The terrorist organisation is pushing for the unification of the Pashtun – an ethnic group that inhabits villages that straddle the border – and therefore don’t wish for barriers to be in place.

Pakistan has said that it’s committed to fencing the nearly 2,600km border.
