On 6 September, the Taliban declared that they seized full control of Panshir Valley, this completes their takeover of the country, and soon they would announce a new government. Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban representative, said, “Panjshir, which wasthe last place of the escapee enemy, is finally occupied.”
The Panjshir Valley is the hometown where the country’s Tajik ethnic minorities live. It is located on the north side of Kabul’s capital and is surrounded by mountains.
The Taliban released a video showing light mountain guns, firearms and different weapons they said had been taken from the armed resistance.
The anti-Taliban resistance army is led by Ahmad Massoud, which includes tribal militias and former Afghan security forces trained by the US. His dad successfully protected Panjshir Valley from the Taliban when they took control of Afghanistan from1996 to 2001.
Massoud didn’t accept defeat, saying his army will continue the fight. “TheNRF on a basic level consent to take care of the current issues and put a prompt end to the war andproceed with talks and negotiations,” Massoud stated on the Facebook post.
Massoud called for a negotiated agreement with the Taliban before the fight broke out around a week earlier.
