KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Interior says a special guard unit has been formed to protect the Qush Tepa Canal project within the framework of the National Public Protection Enterprise.

On its X handle, the MoI wrote without providing details that the unit was laced with all necessary military equipment and devices.

It said the National Public Protection Enterprise has the duty to protect dams, national projects, educational institutions, banks and commercial centers.

The canal, 280 kilometres long and 100 metres wide, is designed to irrigate 500,000 hectares of land in Balkh, Jawzjan and Faryab provinces.
