The Pentagon said that it is not the United States that is not going to provide military support to forces that are waging an armed struggle against the Taliban terrorist movement inside the country. About it stated U.S. Defense Representative John Kirby
Now the opposition to terrorists is holding the last Afghan province of Panjshir.
“The US military operation in Afghanistan is over,” Kirby replied to a journalist’s question about whether the US military would somehow support the Taliban opponents.
In Panjshir, the Afghan National Resistance Front is fighting against the Taliban. Earlier, its representatives reported the deaths of 350 Taliban militants in four days of fighting for the Panjshir Valley.
Earlier last week, the Taliban terrorist movement from two directions stormed Panjshir Valley against the backdrop of the completed withdrawal of US troops. “The Taliban attacked the Front’s forward posts from two directions: from the Andarob Valley, in Baghlan province, and also from the city of Jabal-us-Siraj. The Taliban offensive was repelled without much difficulty, ”local media sources said.
According to publications, the extremists’ losses amounted to 85 killed and 108 more wounded. In the battles near Jabal-us-Siraj, 12 Taliban militants were killed, and another 26 were wounded. There are also wounded among the defenders of Panjshir.
Let us remind you that in August the Taliban militants captured almost all the provinces of the country, and on August 15 they entered the capital. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, as well as many government officials and politicians left the country. The National Resistance Front of Afghanistan operates in Panjshir. The province is the last in the country not controlled by the Taliban.
