The Islamist Taliban group has acquired victory in Panjshir province of Afghanistan, spokesperson describing the area had been fully occupied after 2 weeks of violent skirmish against a resistance group.
Afghanistan’s Panjshir province was the only province that resists the Taliban among the country’s thirty-four provinces. Moreover, if the insurgent group’s claim is authentic, it means the whole of Afghanistan is now under the power of the Taliban.
An anti-Taliban group, the NRF (National Resistance Front in Afghanistan), which has been consistently fighting in the Panjshir province, rejected the Taliban’s statement, with Ali Nazary (a spokesperson) describing to a media agency, CNN, that the resistance is still all over the region.
On Monday, Ahmad Massoud (NRF Head), described that in no way military pressure on them and their land will lessen their resolve to continue their fight. On his Facebook’s official page, in an extensive statement, he requested Afghans to join a general revolt for the sake of pride, freedom, and honor of their nation. He even demanded international favor for his cause.
On social media, footage and pictures are shared widely that displayed the Taliban’s white flag raised between structures that seems to be the office of the Panjshir governor in Bazarak. The news company CNN couldn’t independently confirm the pictures.
The last nest of the enemy was occupied – Zabihullah Mujahid
In a tweet, Zabihullah Mujahid (Taliban spokesperson) described that the last nest of the enemy, Panjshir Valley, was totally occupied. He added that they assure the honorable Panjshir people that they won’t face any discriminatory action. He said they are all our brothers. They will struggle for one nation and a mutual goal. Zabihullah further explained that with the previous struggles and this success, their nation is entirely out of the vortex of war.
After this, he described, in a news session, that Panjshir province being the last region of their opponent has been cleared the previous night. Furthermore, he explained that there were no deaths were reported in the past few days and all arms have been seized. Nazary stated that most of the Bazarak district and almost all the neighboring regions are under control of the NRF.
The NRF said that the insurgent Taliban group’s claim of holding Panjshir is untrue and the NRF forces are available at all tactical places across the region to keep the skirmish on. The NRF added that they assure the Afghan community that the effort against the rivalry group and their allies will continue until freedom and justice prevails.
