Since the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, the Taliban have been continuously expanding in the country, and in less than a week insurgents have captured the capital of five provinces.

The terror of the Taliban is increasing continuously in Afghanistan and the terrorists have captured the city of Sheberghan, the capital of Jowzjan Province. Let us tell you that since the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, the Taliban has been continuously spreading in the country and has occupied many areas so far. It is the fifth provincial capital to fall into rebel hands in less than a week.

The Taliban released 700 men and 30 women from the prison of General Abdul Rashid Dostum after capturing the city of Sheberghan, the capital of Jowzjan Province. Simultaneously, the Taliban is moving forward to take more areas under its control.

Representatives of Takhar province said Taliban fighters on Sunday (August 8) took control of Takhar, the capital of northern Takhar province. He said Taliban fighters also took control of the last areas they had not controlled after a month-long siege. At the same time, Taliban insurgents also took control of most of the capital of Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan on Sunday.

At the same time, Taliban insurgents also took control of most of the capital of Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan on Sunday. Two members of the provincial council said the Taliban took control of the governor’s office and police headquarters after a day of fighting. He said the Taliban also captured the main prison building, from where 500 prisoners, including Taliban fighters, were released. If Kunduz goes under Taliban control, it would be a significant edge for the Taliban. It is one of the largest cities in the country with a population of more than 340,000.

Ghulam Rabbani, a member of the provincial council, said fighting between the rebels and government forces was going on at Kunduz’s airport and other parts. Kunduz is strategically located, with good access to northern Afghanistan as well as the capital, Kabul, about 335 km away. Another member of the provincial council from Kunduz, Mohammad Yousuf Ayubi, also said that the Afghan army controls only the airport and main army barracks and that the Taliban controls all areas of Kunduz except those areas.
