Ahmad Masud, one of the leaders of the resistance units of the Taliban terrorist organization and the son of the influential leader of the Tajik community of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Massoud, appealed to Western countries to help with weapons and ammunition in the fight against the Taliban.
“I implore the friends of Afghanistan in the West to intercede for us in Washington and New York, to intercede for us before Congress and the Biden administration. Step in for us in London, where I graduated, and in Paris, where an alley in the garden on the Champs Elysees was named in honor of my father this spring. <...> We need more weapons, more ammunition and more equipment, ”Masoud said in a letter that was published в The Washington Post.
Massoud also noted that Afghan army soldiers disenchanted with the previous command, including from special forces units, are joining him and Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh in Panjshir. “No matter what happens, my mujahideen warriors and I will defend Panjshir, the last bastion of freedom in Afghanistan,” Masood said.
He added that the resistance units have stockpiles of ammunition and weapons, as well as the weapons of Afghans who have responded to a call to join the resistance in the past 72 hours. In addition, in the resistance units there are soldiers of the regular army of Afghanistan, who were outraged by the surrender of their commanders, and ex-members of the Afghan special forces. However, according to Masoud, this is not enough.
We will remind, last Sunday the Taliban took Kabul, under the rule of terrorists was a large part of the territory of Afghanistan. President Ashraf Ghani and many other Afghan government officials fled the country. The terrorists announced the creation of their own government and Sharia courts. At the same time, the Islamist movement announced an amnesty for officials and invited them to return to work.
