Taliban Captured 8 States in Afghanistan in 5 Days.
Nothing is going to stop the Taliban’s progress in Afghanistan. The jihadists are advancing towards Kabul at breakneck speed. The Taliban took control of Afghanistan’s eighth province on Tuesday.
The Taliban captured Pul-e-Khumri, the capital of Baghlan province, on Tuesday, according to ANI. The militants have also captured the western region of Farah. In just five days, the country’s eight provincial capitals have fallen to jihadists, leaving the Afghan army in a state of disarray.
However, the administration of President Ashraf Ghani has assured that the situation is still out of control. Mohammad Kamin Baghlani, the Baghlan militia commander from his hideout, said, “The Taliban captured Pool-e-Khumri on Tuesday. Lots of pressure is coming as the militants are raging in the city.
The Taliban are not going to be stopped. Our troops have retreated further south.” According to the New York Times, the Taliban have seized the central prison in Farah city and released all the prisoners.
They are roaming the streets of the city. Government workers have taken refuge in an army base outside the city to save lives.
The Taliban have seized control of several Afghan provinces in the past few days as US forces moved in. However, the US Air Force has come to the aid of the Afghan army, which is still in a state of disarray.
American warplanes are bombing militant bases. However, as instructed by President Joe Biden, the US military will withdraw from Afghanistan by August 31. Although the situation in that country is complicated, it is clear that Biden will not back down from his determination to end America’s ‘longest war.’
Therefore, analysts fear that the Afghan army will not get the help of the US Air Force in the future.
On Monday, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said: “It’s their responsibility to protect the country. It is their fight.” In such a situation, the Taliban’s occupation of Kabul is just a matter of time. The problem is not moving in the right direction.
