Panjdeh incident - Russian encounter with Afghan forces at Pul-i-Khishty (Brick Bridge)

Panjdeh incident - Russian encounter with Afghan forces at Pul-i-Khishty (Brick Bridge) . The 'incident' of 1885 was a diplomatic crisis between the British Empire and the Russian Empire caused by Russian expansion south-eastwards towards the Emirate of Afghanistan and the British Raj (India). After nearly completing the Russian conquest of Central Asia (Russian Turkestan) Russian forces captured an Afghan border fort. Seeing a threat to India, Britain came close to threatening war but both sides backed down and the matter was settled by diplomacy. The effect was to stop further Russian expansion in Asia, except for the Pamir Mountains and to define the north-western border of Afghanistan. Date: 1885
