One child and three women were chopped to death by the Taliban.
The Taliban have taken over Afghanistan, defeating the US-backed government. The country of Kabuliwala is terrified by the return of jihadists to power after almost two decades.
In such a crisis, the Jayarath of the Taliban stopped at the gates of the Panjshir Valley. And the jihadists have become more brutal because of the obstacles.
In such a situation, Taliban militants are reportedly killing children and women indiscriminately.
On Tuesday, former Afghan Interior Minister Masood Andarabi alleged that the Taliban were killing children and women indiscriminately in the Andarab valley in Baghlan province.
Not only that, the militants are using children and civilians as shields against the rebel forces of the Northern Alliance. It is worth mentioning that despite occupying 98 percent of Afghanistan, the average Panjshir remains independent.
Today, Masood’s son, Ahmed Masood, 32, and Afghanistan’s self-proclaimed interim president, Amrullah Saleh, are building resistance in the valley.
Under his leadership, the Northern Alliance is retaliating against the Taliban. Insurgents have also reportedly seized several locations in Baghlan province, including Andarab.
However, according to the latest news, thousands of Taliban militants have gathered at the gates of Panjshir after reclaiming the lost land.
Last Monday, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed that his fighters had surrounded Panjshir. They will soon occupy the area.
Earlier, Khalilur Haqqani, a Taliban leader in charge of Kabul’s security and leader of the Haqqani network, said: “I have spoken with Ahmed Masood. He has agreed to disarm himself to bring peace to Afghanistan.”
Regarding the fighting in Andarab, Amarullah Saleh said that Taliban militants surrounded the entire area. They do not allow the entry of food, drinking water, and medicines into the area.
Terrorists are committing atrocities in the name of the house-to-house search. Ordinary people are fleeing to the mountains to escape the hands of the jihadists. Among them are thousands of children and women.
Later, he added that the rebel forces had blocked the Salang Highway at the entrance to Panjshir.
According to sources, there are around 9,000 fighters under the anti-Taliban National Resistance Force at the moment. Members of the Afghan army join them. The Taliban want to come to the negotiating table with Ahmed Masood this time.
Meanwhile, five months ago, Washington agreed to place the jihadists in a “conditional” confession on behalf of a peace agreement in Doha. Since then, President Joe Biden has faced the same criticism at home and abroad.
The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) head has held secret meetings with Taliban leaders in Kabul.
On Monday, CIA chief William Burns held a “very urgent” secret meeting with Abdul Ghani Baradar, one of the top Taliban leaders in the Afghan capital, Kabul.
When asked about this, the CIA said that it is not possible to discuss where the agency’s head is going and what he does.
According to analysts, the extension of the deadline for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan has been discussed between Bardar and the CIA.
The meeting also raised the safe evacuation of US citizens from the war-torn country and ensuring their safety.
