Taliban preparing for major attack on Panjshir
The Taliban is preparing for a major attack in Panjshir. Taliban fighters have arrived to attack Panjshir with heavy weapons. It is being said that this time the number of Taliban fighters is also more. On Sunday night, Taliban fighters attacked Andrab district of Baglan province, adjacent to Panjshir. There are reports of many people being killed here. In view of the attack, rebel fighters have started preparations in Deh-e-Salah district of Baglan. After this attack, exodus has started in the area around Panjshir. Local people are running away from their homes. The insurgents fighting the Taliban here had retreated a few days ago and went to the mountains, but now they have started attacks on the Taliban from the mountains itself.
Panjshir fighters can create trouble for Taliban
However, the Taliban are also in favor of an early resolution of the Panjshir case. The Taliban believe that if Panjshir’s fighters are not pacified, they will face difficulties in running the government. It is worth noting that the Panjshir Valley is the only area in Afghanistan on which the pulses of Taliban fighters have not been able to melt till date. Taliban negotiators are in constant talks with Ahmed Masood to join the government. According to sources, no agreement has been reached so far. Haqqani’s claims have also not been confirmed yet.

Panjshir has a large population of Tajiks and Hazaras. The special thing is that many people of Afghan army have also reached here. It is believed that an army of six thousand people is present to take on the Taliban. In such a situation, there is news that the Northern Alliance can start a fight against the Taliban. In the last three days, people from the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces visited the Panjshir Valley. They are strengthening Masood’s alliance. The Taliban attacked on several fronts. Recently, Taliban opponents have captured three provinces of Afghanistan. On the other hand, Taliban fighters have knocked in Panjshir. The forces of Taliban and Panjshir are in face-to-face. The Taliban have said that force will be used if Ahmed Masood does not surrender.
Panjshir Valley has been a stronghold of opposition to Taliban rule
Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley has long been a stronghold of opposition to the Taliban regime. Mujahideen leader Ahmed Shah Masood, who fought against the former Soviet Union, made this valley his stronghold. When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan two decades ago, the Panjshir Valley was still completely free and independent. However, this time around the situation has completely changed. The Taliban is stronger than ever. Therefore questions are being raised on the independence of Panjshir. Questions are also being raised whether they will be able to compete with the Taliban.
Ahmed Masood raised the flag in protest against the Taliban
In the Panjshir Valley, Ahmed Masood, son of Ahmed Shah Masood, has now raised the flag in protest against the Taliban. However, Masood does not have any major identity other than his father’s legacy. Amrullah Saleh, the Vice President of Afghanistan, has also taken refuge here. Those with close ties to Western and anti-Taliban governments are trying to form an alliance with Masood against the Taliban.
