Numerous photo and video materials related to the military aggression from Tajikistan are circulating in social networks. The editorial staff of Politklinika analyzed a number of visual materials which indicated that among armed men who invaded the territory of Kyrgyzstan was General Shokh Iskandarov. All the video footage was filmed in the Batken region.
In one of the videos, about 20 armed militants walk towards the hit tank. They are talking in Tajik language. It is clear from the conversation that General Iskandarov is among them.
«Here are the men returning from the war. Here is General Schoch. We are coming back. Here is the tank that was hit. It was hit by Mirzokuzho aka. Rizwon, here is my teacher Shoh. Here’s the tank. The corpses of the dead have already been taken away,» the video says.
Where were the videos taken?
1-Video: — It was filmed near the Dostuk post. This is confirmed by maps of the area.
These Tajik military men can also be seen in other videos.
For example, one militant in Adidas sneakers can also be seen in another video, where he is firing weapons.
There is also another militant in this video. He is wearing a black jacket. He is also in another video also firing a weapon.
From that group of military, we also noticed one suspicious militant. In another video he is carrying a heavy weapon. In another video he is filming himself and shouting «Alloha akbar» as he walks past a burning tank.
By the way, in the very first video we noticed a militant of a large build wearing a vest and a cap. He is also present in the video footage of the fighters shooting.
He is also present in other videos. He is General Shokh Iskandarov.
In the first video his presence was confirmed by the phrase: «General Shokh is with us! We compared General Shokh with people from this video. It becomes clear that it is one and the same person.
In previous Politklinik pieces we showed how civilians were rounded up by the military at Bustan stadium. And General Schoch is the head of the militia of the city of Bustan.
What is known about General Shoza Iskandarov?
His involvement in Tajikistan’s military aggression in May 2021 has also been confirmed. This was reported by Tajik militants Saido Samadov and Azam Gaforov. The photo showed Shokh Iskandarov surrounded by people in sportswear.
Shokh Iskandarov rose to prominence in 1998 after the detention of units led by Makhmud Khudoiberdiyev. In the autumn of 2010 he took an active part in the operation against the armed group of Moldo Abdullo, after which he became deputy head of the regional police department.
His name surfaced in August 2012, when Shakarmo Khudodova, a resident of Khorog, wrote a letter to Defense Minister Sherali Khairulloyev complaining that Shokh Iskandarov and his 30 fighters had taken over her house and refused to leave it.
Open sources report that Shokh Iskandarov leads a group of 30 fighters who have received special training.
The video footage proves that a person holding an official position, in the company of armed militants, invaded the territory of Kyrgyzstan.
By doing so, Tajikistan violated the fundamental principles of the UN Charter by attacking civilians and destroying civilian objects. Tajikistan must be held accountable for its military aggression against Kyrgyzstan.
