The Press Center of the Border Troops of the State Committee for National Security (SCNS) of Tajikistan reports that on July 22, the residents of rural community Vorukh of the city of Isfara, as part of preparation for the working visit of the Founder of Peace and National Unity � Leader of the Nation, President of the Republic of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon to Isfara and his meeting with the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, were engaged in landscaping, in particular they installed on a pole the state flag of Tajikistan on the territory of Vorukh.

At about 16:35 Kyrgyz citizens prevented this situation, voluntarily dug the ground, installed the inscription Oksoy and the flag of their country. As Kyrgyz citizens carried out this act on the territory of Tajikistan, the residents of Vorukh opposed them. As a result, between the residents of the two countries occurred conflict.

The Kyrgyz citizens along with throwing stones also used firearms. As a result of the shooting one Tajik citizen Karaev Jalol, 1967 birth year, resident of Vorukh was killed and three others were injured. Also as a result of throwing stones, 7 Tajik citizens were seriously injured and taken to hospital.

Kyrgyz citizens, taking advantage of the moment, illegally blocked IsfaraVorukh road.

The event that took place in Isfara on the eve of the meeting of the heads of the two neighboring states shows that some interested Kyrgyz circles do not want peace and tranquility on the border line and resort to provocations.

Currently, official representatives of the TajikKyrgyz border agencies, and other relevant authorities of the two countries are at the scene of the incident.
