The Taliban armed group, which returned to power in Kabul a year ago, displayed helicopters, armored vehicles, light and heavy weapons, and handmade mines, which were very deadly in the last two decades, TOLO News reported.
During the parade, Prime Minister Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund demanded unfreezing of the Afghan people’s funds in the banks of the United States and its allies.
The US troops left Afghanistan in worse socio-economic conditions than in 2001, when it invaded in a supposed anti-terrorist crusade.
The war cost the US taxpayer more than two trillion dollars according to Brown University, nearly 3,000 US soldiers died, 20,000 others were injured, and hundreds of thousands of Afghan civilians were killed.
About 11 million people sought refuge outside the country, and five million others were displaced within Afghan territory.
