According to the multiple reports coming from Afghanistan, the Taliban forces have thronged at the door of Afghanistan’s Panjshir in north of Kabul. The valley is one of the few regions that has not been captured by the armed force. Surrounded by the Hindu Kush peaks, Panjshir is known for its resistance against the Taliban.
Afghanistan former Vice President Amrullah Saleh, who has proclaimed himself to be the acting President of Afghanistan after former President Ghani fled the country leaving its own people to be tormented by the hands of Taliban.
In a tweet on Monday morning, Saleh said, “Talibs have massed forces near the entrance of Panjshir a day after they got trapped in ambush zones of neighbouring Andarab valley & hardly went out in one piece.”
In a further update he said, “Meanwhile Salang highway is closed by the forces of the Resistance. There are terrains to be avoided. See you.”
Powers resisting against the Taliban in northern Afghanistan say that they have taken three regions near the Panjshir valley.
Former Vice President Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, former Afghan politician and military commander have promised to oppose and stop the Taliban from entering Panjshir, which repulsed both Soviet powers and the Taliban during the 1980s and 1990s.
Massoud’s confidants say that more than 6,000 warriors have accumulated in the Panjshir valley. They say they have a few helicopters and military vehicles and have fixed a portion of the defensively covered vehicles abandoned by the Soviets.
There is no association between the groups aggregated in Panjshir. In the capital Kabul protestors raised formerly used Afghan flag to oppose the unconstitutional capture of Kabul and that of Afghanistan.
Ahmad Massoud said on Sunday he would like to hold peaceful discussions with the Islamist group that held onto power in Kabul. He also said that his warriors are prepared to battle in order to regain Afghanistan as a democratic country.
