Authorities said Sunday that the Taliban’s march through northern Afghanistan gained some momentum with the capture of a few regions from fleeing Afghan powers, a few hundred of whom escaped across the border into Tajikistan.
According to Tajikistan’s State Committee for National Security, more than 300 Afghan military personnel crossed from Afghanistan’s Badakhshan region as Taliban contenders advanced toward the border.
According to the proclamation, Tajik specialists directed by the standards of humanism and great neighborliness allowed the withdrawing Afghan National Defense and Security Forces to cross into Tajikistan.
Since mid-April, when US Vice President Joe Biden declared the end of Afghanistan’s “eternity war,” the Taliban have made gains across the country. Regardless, their most significant additions have been in the country’s north, a traditional fortress of the US-backed warlords who aided in their defeat in 2001.
The Taliban currently control approximately 33% of Afghanistan’s 421 districts and regional centers.
According to Mohib-ul Rahman, the recent gains in northeastern Badakhshan region have mostly gone to extremist development without a battle. He blamed Taliban victories on the helpless assurance of troops who were generally dwarfed and lacked resupplies.
“Unfortunately, most of the areas were left to the Taliban with no battle,” Rahman said. He said that in the last three days, ten locations had fallen to the Taliban, eight without a fight.
