Taliban attack rebel stronghold in Panjshir

Kabul, Aug 31 (Prensa Latina) The Taliban attacked the resistance forces in Panjshir province, 120 kilometers to the northeast of Kabul, the only area of Afghanistan yet to fall under the militants' control, it was reported on Tuesday.

Radical fundamentalist forces violated a non-aggression agreement before another round of negotiations began and launched attacks on the resistance forces, The Khaama Press reported.

The attacks were carried out in different places, but they were repelled and the Taliban had to withdraw, although they did not yet comment about the issue.

Since the Taliban occupied Kabul, glimmers of resistance emerged from some government’s troops in Panjshir province.

Ahmad Massoud, commander of the last anti-Taliban stronghold, announced that he hopes to hold peaceful talks with the Taliban.

The Taliban celebrated this Tuesday the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, after an airlift ended that, according to the White House, some 123,000 people were evacuated from Kabul’s international airport.

Afghanistan is now more impoverished due to the conflict and according to the UN, since the war began, 11 million people sought refuge outside the country, five millions are displaced within the country and more than 150,000 civilians were killed.
