Baghdad The spokesman for the “Taliban” movement, Zabihullah Mujahid, announced that the Afghan province of Panjshir, north of the capital, Kabul, has become completely under the movement’s control.

“The last stronghold of the enemy, the state of Panjshir, has been completely captured, and the state of Panjshir has come under the full control of the Islamic Emirate of the Taliban political regime,” the spokesman said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Prior to that, the state of Panjshir witnessed fierce battles between the anti-Taliban National Resistance Front, based in Panjshir province, and the movement’s militants.

The mountainous province of Panjshir is a stronghold of the forces of the “National Resistance Front” led by Masoud, the military-political leader of Tajik origin, against the Taliban, which recently took control of most of Afghanistan, including the capital, Kabul.
