Taliban sends 'hundreds' of men to the Panjshir Valley in Afghanistan



On Sunday, the Taliban announced that "hundreds" of its members were en route to the Panjshir Valley, one of the few areas of Afghanistan that the party does not yet control.

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, some ex-government troops have gathered in Panjshir, north of Kabul, which has long been seen as an anti-Taliban stronghold.

"Hundreds of Islamic Emirate Mujahideen are heading to Panjshir to take control after local state authorities refused to hand it over peacefully," the outfit said on its Arabic Twitter feed.

Thousands of Afghans have fled to Panjshir since the Taliban grabbed control of the nation following a lightning strike on the capital Kabul, according to an anti-Taliban official.

Ahmad Massoud, the son of famed mujahideen commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, who was slain by Al Qaeda two days before the 9/11 attacks, has planned to create an army of roughly 9,000 individuals to combat the militants in Panjshir, according to the spokesman, Ali Maisam Nazary.

The group intends to advocate for a new political structure, but is willing to fight if necessary, according to Nazary.

"Government forces arrived in Panjshir from a number of Afghan regions," Massoud told Saudi Arabia's Al-Arabiya television station on Sunday.

"If the Taliban continues on this course, they will not last long. We are prepared to protect Afghanistan and have issued a warning of impending violence."
