Al-Jazeera, meanwhile, quoted a Taliban source as saying that fighting for control of Panshir continued. But the Taliban’s offensive against the NRF has slowed. Because, there are land mines on the roads of the area.
The Afghan capital, Kabul, fell to the Taliban on August 15. More than three weeks have passed since the capture of Kabul, but the Taliban have not been able to take control of the Panshi Valley. The valley is under the control of rebel National Resistance Front (NRF) fighters.
However, the Taliban claimed control of the Panshi Valley last Friday. But the Taliban were still fighting with the opposition in Panshi yesterday.
