Taliban claim control of the Afghan Panjshir province: Fall of Panjshir?
Panjshir latest news: Panjshir became a thorn in the side of the Taliban across Afghanistan. The Taliban were unable to occupy this province at all.
Amrullah Saleh, the self-proclaimed president of Afghanistan, and Ahmad Masood, the current leader of the Northern Alliance, shouted:
Freed from the Taliban from Panjshir.
But what is the last defense? According to an international media source, the Taliban have taken control of Panjshir. The Taliban have also made this claim.
A few days ago, an Afghan media outlet claimed that the bridge to Panjshir from Golbahar Road had been demolished.
Panjshir has been surrounded. However, anti-Taliban fighters claimed that the province was accessible.
According to sources, clashes broke out between the Taliban and their opponents on Friday. Panjshir was also able to build resistance against the Taliban in 1990.
The Taliban have been fighting the National Resistance Front (NRF) for the past two weeks to prevent the area from falling into the hands of the Taliban.
On Monday, the Taliban claimed control of three districts in Panjshir. This time the Taliban are known to have seized Panjshir. However, anti-Taliban fighters have denied the allegations.
By the way, Panjshir province is 150 km from Kabul. This valley is also known as the “Valley of the Five Lions.” The Taliban failed to take control of the province in 1990.
Not only the Taliban but also the Soviets were unable to take control of the province.
Meanwhile, Panjshir, the son of then-Vice President Amrullah Saleh and Ahmed Shah Masood called for a fight against the Taliban.
“We will not give peace to the Taliban either,” he said. Panjshir will resist the Taliban.
On the other hand, the Taliban will form the government on Saturday, Taliban spokesman Jabiullah Mujahid said.
Under the August 31 agreement, US troops withdrew from Afghanistan. Since then, the Taliban have taken steps to form a new government.
It is known that Mullah Abdul Gani Baradar will be seen in the leading role of the Afghan government.
Mullah Baradar, co-founder of the Taliban, and Mullah Mohammad Yaqub, son of Mullah Omar, founder of the Taliban, are also expected to be seen in the Taliban cabinet.
However, experts believe that the demand for the fall of Panjshir before the formation of the government is significant.
Meanwhile, rumors circulated that Amrullah Saleh had left Afghanistan. However, he claimed that this claim was unfounded.
Saleh said: ‘I didn’t leave the country. I am in Panjshir. Of course, this is a difficult time.
We are targeting by the Taliban, Pakistan, and Al Qaeda.
