New checkpoint opened

HERAT PROVINCE, Afghanistan - A new vehicle checkpoint was opened in Karezak village, Enjil district, April 4, built by ISAF’s Italian-led Herat Provincial Reconstruction Team.  

Present at the ceremony was Commander of Italian PRT in Herat, Colonel Pietro Monteduro, and General Fazli, the Provincial Commander of the Afghan National Police.

The project began on October 28 last year and cost nearly US$50,000, and is part of the program to help sustain the Herat Police Department, which was started in 2006.

This checkpoint opening is part of the wider scheme of projects which the Italian-led PRT are facilitating to reconstruct and develop the west of Afghanistan.
