The Nationwide Resistance Entrance (NRF) continues to counter the Taliban within the Panjshir Valley – primarily regarding sporadic assaults. Therefore, the Taliban claims to have killed roughly 40 fighters from the NRF in current days. Due to this fact, that is an admission by the Taliban that the NRF is placing up resistance within the Panjshir Valley.

In Could, the NRF launched a number of assaults towards the Taliban within the mountains and valleys of Panjshir Valley. The administration of President Joe Biden not solely handed Afghanistan on “a Taliban plate,” however the armed forces of America additionally left billions of {dollars} of navy tools behind. Thus the Taliban is utilizing American navy weapons and different Western weapons to kill NRF forces.

Voice of America reviews, “Critics say the anti-rebel offensive signifies the Taliban are struggling to include the Nationwide Resistance Entrance, or NRF, a rising insurgency in Panjshir and components of neighboring Baghlan province since taking on the war-torn nation a 12 months in the past.”

The Taliban is using the navy property of America regarding floor and air operations towards the NRF. Therefore, regardless of the Taliban downplaying the importance of the NRF: the reality of the matter is the Taliban requested Abdul Qayum Zakir (a senior commander throughout the Taliban) to counter the NRF within the Panjshir Valley and the encompassing environs.

The chief of the Nationwide Resistance Entrance, Ahmad Masoud, stated, current navy clashes “uncovered the lies and deceit of the Taliban who’ve been reportedly rejecting resistance within the nation.”

Ahmad Masoud stated the NRF is preventing an “unequal battle” towards absolute “tyranny.” 

The Pakistan Observer reviews, “A whole lot of the Afghanistan Nationwide Safety Protection Forces members and particular forces headed in direction of Panjshir province after the autumn of the administration final 12 months with a view to set up a resistance drive towards the Taliban led by Ahmad Massoud and another anti-Taliban figures.”

Reuters reported (August 2021), “One other official stated that whereas there aren’t any definitive numbers but, the present intelligence evaluation was that the Taliban are believed to manage greater than 2,000 armored autos, together with U.S. Humvees, and as much as 40 plane probably together with UH-60 Black Hawks, scout assault helicopters, and ScanEagle navy drones.”

ABC reviews, “Different American-made navy autos reported to be in Taliban fingers embody M1117 Guardians, MaxxPro MRAPs, Oshkosh ATVs and different navy autos used to navigate the nation’s rugged terrain.”

Western media that’s pro-Biden seeks to underplay the function of the NRF in countering the Taliban in areas of ongoing resistance. In any case, it’s embarrassing that not solely did America throw Afghanistan’s civil society beneath a bus, the administration of Biden left huge navy assets within the fingers of the Taliban.
