The spokesman for the “Taliban” movement, Zabihullah Mujahid, announced that the Afghan province of Panjshir, north of Kabul, has become completely under the control of the movement.
“The last stronghold of the enemy, Panjshir Province, has been completely captured,” the spokesperson said in a statement posted on Twitter. Panjshir province came under the full control of the Islamic Emirate of the Taliban political system.
He added that some of the rebels were defeated in the battles, while others fled. The Taliban assured the people of Panjshir that they would not persecute them.
Prior to that, Panjshir Province witnessed fierce battles between the anti-Taliban National Resistance Front, based in Panjshir Province, and Taliban militants.
The mountainous province of Panjshir is a stronghold of the forces of the “National Resistance Front” led by Masoud, the military-political leader of Tajik origin, against the Taliban, which recently took control of most of the territory of Afghanistan, including the capital, Kabul.
