The forces of Abdul-Rashid Dostum, under command of his son, are reportedly active in the provinces of Sari-Pul, Badghis, Jowzjan, Faryab, Samangan and Kunduz. Local militias receive assistance from Turkey.

Turan Ismail Khan, mainly supported by Iran, is carrying out attacks in the province of Herat.

Meanwhile, Taliban militants continue their offensive in the Afghan province of Kandahar, seizing military checkpoints, weapons, equipment and key roads.

Taliban shared video from the residence of local governor.

At the same time, Afghan Ministry of defense shares footage of the recent air strikes that were carried out in the same district.

Amid the on-going clashes all over Afghanistan, Kabul officials are going to visit Doha for another round of negotiations with representatives of the Taliban.

On July 13, Tolo news reported that an 11-member team of Afghan politicians were expected to travel to Doha by the end of this week.

The delegation should reportedly include: Abdullah Abdullah, Hamid Karzai, Yunus Qanooni, Karim Khalili, Mohammad Mohaqiq, Salam Rahimi, Abdul Rashid Dostum, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Sayed Sadat Mansoor Naderi, Enayatullah Baligh and Fatima Gailani.

This comes as Abdullah Abdullah, the head of the High Council for National Reconciliation, and former president Hamid Karzai, said that Kabul expected important steps to be taken in the peace talks within the next few days.

The meeting will take place following the last week’s talks in Tehran.

“Some politicians, including former president Karzai’s close aide Abdul Karim Khurram, said the meeting was “highly constructive” during which the two sides shared recommendations with each other.” – Tolo news reported.

Wouldn’t it be highly convenient for some if all the afghan leaders would have an accident on their way to or in doha?

I wonder why all there leaders some of them warlords since for ever would trust the safety guarantees.

Peter Wallace

These types of meetings generally have 3rd party countries guaranteeing the safety of the participants. In this case Qatar would be one and also perhaps Russia and Pakistan . Those travelling for the talks from all parties will have some sort of diplomatic immunity and apart from America ( Soleimani ) countries abide by hands off.

The ANA should not be written off, Indian military academy at Dehra Dun has trained hundreds of their officers and found them very motivated and professionals. If the ANA and Northern Alliance with Russian, Chinese and Iranian assistance can form a unified operational command like the SAA and Iranian militias have done in Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Afghan government can survive and even reclaim territory. Taliban are basically Wahhabi criminals from Pakistan and China who feeds the Pakis is leaning on them. The bankrupt Pakis can not alienate the Chinese masters who feed them. Expecting a Taliban takeover is a bit premature to quote Mark Twain.

Don’t worry people!!! The egomaniacal wannabe Sultan of Shitistain, Er dog, has said that he is sending Turkish troops to Afghanistan to bring stability to the country!!!!! The Taliban have warned him: send lots and lots of body bags too.


IF Turkey and Iran want to keep this TAliban in control then they have to cooperate and create good resistance army in north of Afghanistan all the way to east and south and tell this taliban you are not the only who can fight. taliban thinks they are invisible fighters like zionist.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
