New Delhi: The anti-Taliban campaign in Afghanistan’s Panjshir province has made gains in the northern Baghlan province while discussions to form a new government continues.
Fighters from the self-styled “Resistance-2” fighting the Taliban in Panjshir claimed to have retaken Salah and Banu districts in Baghlan after killing “dozens” of Taliban.
According to TRT World, Panjshir is the only one of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces that has yet to fall to insurgents.
The Taliban are said to have surrounded Panjshir as the insurgents and resistance organisations continue to negotiate a cease-fire.
With the anti-Taliban campaign retaking Pul-e-Hisar over the weekend, the Massoud forces now control at least three districts in Baghlan province to the north of Panjshir. Baghlan is around 120 kilometers north of Kabul.
