Rebel group under the umbrella of Northern Alliance makes gains against Taliban
Rebel group under the umbrella of Northern Alliance makes gains against Taliban, moving in as close as 60 km to Kabul, led by ousted VP Amrullah Saleh and son of slain Afghan war hero Ahmad Shah Massoud, reports The Long War Journal
The Resistance has now recaptured areas of Andarab, Dih-Saleh, Puli Hisar, Charikar, Khanjan
The anti-Taliban resistance forces very well know if they do not show their strength then there will be no negotiation, and the Taliban will not give any credit to them, therefore they are fighting to put pressure on taliban so that both sides can have a dialogue to come to some sort of solution
Anti-Taliban fighters “captured those [four] key districts and are threatening the Taliban’s control of the highway to the north,” a source within the resistance told FDD’s Long War Journal. They also claimed to take “all of Andarab back.”
Within the past month, as the Taliban stormed their way across Afghanistan and ultimately seized Kabul, Andarab became a haven for Afghan security forces troops who did not surrender and capitulate to the Taliban. Andarab has long been a center of anti-Taliban sentiments, so the conquest of the district grants the Panjshir resistance further supporters and resources.
