Hundreds Of Pro-Kabul Soldiers, Policemen & Employees Switch Sides To The Taliban In Helmand

Illustrative image.

On August 6, the Taliban announced that hundreds of employees of the Kabul government, policemen and soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) defecated and joined its ranks in the southern province of Helmand over the last 24 hours.

The first defection took place in the district of Grishk. 67 personnel of the ANA and the Afghan National Police (ANP) joined the Taliban’s ranks after handing over 27 assault rifles, two RPG-7 rounds, eight sniper rifles, six heavy machine guns and six handguns.

In the district of Nawa-I-Barakzayi, 247 personnel of the ANA and the ANP defected. The defectors handed over 53 assault rifles, five heavy machine guns, four RPG-7 rounds, four mortar rounds, a sniper rifle, four handguns, three light machine guns, a pickup truck and a motorcycle to the Taliban.

And in the district of Nad Ali, 53 employees of the Kabul government “surrendered” to the Taliban. The employees handed over 13 assault rifles and a sniper refile to the group, which promised not to harm them.

“The said employees promised that they will not return to the ranks of the enemy, thus they were given safety cards,” the Taliban said in a press release.

The Taliban may have exaggerated the numbers of defectors in Helmand. Nevertheless, there is no denying that more and more personnel are leaving Afghan government forces and state jobs out of fear of the Taliban’s rapid advance in the country.

Within weeks of US President Joe Biden’s announcement of the withdrawal of US troops last May, the Taliban have marched on to capture almost half of Afghanistan’s nearly 400 districts. Afghan government forces are showing fierce resistance in few areas, like the northwestern city of Herat. However, they are collapsing on most fronts.

Indian RAW which has excellent sources in both Afghanistan and Pakistan believes that the poor war torn country will be Balkanized. Most of world has withdrawn all diplomats and citizens and believe that Kabul will eventually fall. The new generation of local Afghan Taliban are not big fans of Pakistan either and may turn better than the original Pakistani version.

You really mean a new country will emerge in North East of India ie Nagaland which 90% Christian and will merge with Karen State in Myanmar
And India is classified as a failed state here is definition of Failed state
Failed or dysfunctional states are defined by the collapse or absence of governance and control, both functions of leadership. A failed state is also equated with a political body that has disintegrated to a point where basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government no longer function properly. A state can also fail if the government loses its legitimacy even if it is performing its functions properly.
NOW PROVE TO ME IF IT APPLIES TO EITHER AFGHANISTAN OR PAKISTAN

Meanwhile 50 Pakistani soldiers dead in the last 3 days in balochistan and waziristan 😂

The Black Terror

Maybe the pay. food and health insurance was better in the Taliban Army. As an added plus, they don’t have a high suicide rate compared to the US military – so far this year, at least 375 active duty personnel were tired of living.

G2 Man

US military comes from the drug addicted dregs of a failed US society and there is mass demoralization. US sailors recently burnt down the$ 2 billion US navy aircraft carrier.

USS Bonhomme Richard fire: Suspect identified as a white angry 20-year-old Navy sailor who hated the American system.

US & EU are Zion slaves

ANA is a fuking joke, Afghanistan “government” most of the time doesn’t even pay their troops.
They also get outnumbered like 80% of the time, without backups, before the yanquis support them with air power. But now they don’t have that.

north K

afghan puppets have about 3 months. very similar to south vietnam although south vietnam lasted more than a year with all the logistics and weapons left behind by north america. these puppets have been propped up by north america so long and north american imperialist’s play book is to make sure those puppets under their occupation not be independent minded for an obvious reason. as a result they don’t have the ability for independent military planning and execution. afghan puppet president will show up somewhere in north america soon.

Arch Bungle

“policemen and soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) defecated and joined its ranks in the”

“Defecated” indeed… Nice work, editors.

Chess Master

Guess the country

Wizzy

It’s really so easy to end all of this:
1) This is the Taliban, a group that will never stop fighting until they are in power again, it doesn’t matter how long it takes, or if you nuke them, they gonna keep fighting.
2) Ashraf Ghani can be a big boy and give the Taliban what they want, so he can save all of us the time and countless innocent lives.
3) This is not the Taliban from the early 2000s, they know they gotta do things differently now. This is the time to get concessions out of the group, not keep fighting them.

US & EU are Zion slaves

You stupid,
1. Taliban are supported by SA and Paksitani ISS, stop them and they run out and die. If you want to use nuke you don’t hit Afghanistan but Pakistan, they are more Pashtuns in Afghanistan and hardcore Taliban hide their family there not in Afghanistan. (Remember when the US bombed Pakistan? why?)
2. Ghani is yanquis and his wife is a Zion, he is killing Afghans by not giving them weapons and letting the Taliban get them before the Afghans. This report proves my point, South of Afghanistan are Pashtuns don’t give them anything they work with the Taliban.
3. They are two types of Taliban (Afghan that you see in meetings, Pakistani Taliban that do anything in Afghanistan). What prove you have that shows they have changed? They forcibly rape underage girls, you can find those videos still, they think they won and the hardcore Sunnis in Pakistan aren’t what you think they are – the worse yet to come for Pakistan, remember what Pashtuns Pakistani told the Pakistani government?
3.1. “This is the time to get concessions out of the group, not keep fighting them.” Do you even try to look up few things before talking? The Zion Ghani trying to talk not the Pashtuns.
Who took more lands? Afghan or Pashtuns?
How can you say they are attacking?

Jealous Shiite Cultist Bullshit – The Mullah Priest in Qom are upset that the REAL religion of islam will have a State . F@ck You and F@ck Press TV. The Taliban will prevail

The Objective

I like this your reply so much I would have bought you a bottle of coke if we met.
Real Islam is getting a state. Dajjal’s people in Qom are pretty mad.

S Balu

GHANI is using Airforce to bomb Afghanistan cities and infrastructure
Killing innocent civilians
Ie he is doing what USA/NATO invaders set out to do ie, bomb Afghanistan back to Stone Age

Michel LeBlanc

Southfront, please change the hillarious typo in the headline defecated to the boring but correct term defected.

Keep up the good work, thank you!

Ahson

these primitive fawkin pashtu neanderthals should all be killed ASAP.

US & EU are Zion slaves

And maybe the Afghan government shouldn’t give them weapons like morons.

YankeeGoHome

Them Pashtuns OWN you MthrFcker

The Objective

Forget the bastard anti-taliban commenters here. Most are Shiites as they see their influence rolling back.
The Taliban are a good example of what the real Muslim heroes are like. They are fighting the same America that PMU always claim to fight but are too cowardly to draw a single American blood. They are just angry to see the real Muslim heroes defeat America by force of arms. This is something no Shiite group can boast of.

Arch Bungle

They’re superior to your kind. Therefore worthy of moving on to the next stage of human evolution.

Your kind on other hand, belong in the dustbin of history.

You mean what Upper caste Bhramins are doing to your lot ie low caste Dalits in India

Russian and Chinese collapse agenda 2024

Meanwhile on the other side – Russians admit taliban have lost offensive steam.

US & EU are Zion slaves

Yes, they are right. South Afghanistan are mostly Pashtuns in the first place, Pakistani Pashtuns didn’t have to do anything and they didn’t LMFAO.

UKROPISSTAN HOMO AND CORRUPT COUNTRY

Indeed, the U.S. will collapse till 2024.

UKROPISSTAN HOMO AND CORRUPT COUNTRY

Talán bs just took another HQ…
It seems you shouldn’t get your news from CIA News Network…

YankeeGoHome

In your and their wildest dreams

Arch Bungle

The Russians can “admit” no such thing.
They are neither in a position to know,
nor have they actually said such a thing.

You’re a pretty lame propagandist.

Abay madar chod bhonsere kay, you are still polluting these forums with nonsense.

Afghanistan is a Triibal nation.
For the last 20 years the US has tried to promote a “central” (Kabul) government that can collect taxes in the ‘western way’.
Taliban are smart enough to work with the Tribes, not against them.
Without any doubt they will win, and China will back them, with defensive Air Support.

US & EU are Zion slaves

I agree with most of it but China will never give Pakistani Pashtuns defensive air support.
China doesn’t like backward Sunnis and doesn’t want their Sunnis to take weapons and fight against China.
The US wanted the Taliban Pakistani to take the power, they are backward Sunnis and you can see why.
Iran – doesn’t like backward Sunnis – ISIS and other terrorists have been moving to Afghanistan btw said Russia.
Russia – doesn’t want Central Asia countries to fight backward Sunnis.
China – doesn’t have many borders with Afghanistan but yanquis can use backward Taliban to bomb central Asian countries mainly China roads/railways.

The Objective

Say what you want Shiite dog. But the truth remains. Backward Taliban defeats advanced Shiites in Afghanistan despite sitting right next to a weak cowardly Shiite super power.

YankeeGoHome

Pakistan sent thousands of troops dressed as taliban to assist taliban. They are getting weapons and logistical support from ISI. They are already attacking Kabul, and assasinated the Media Minister and humiliated the governor of Nimroz province after capturing his HQ

G2 Man

As I have stated earlier, this is the omen for the future as the Taliban have just captured Zaranj, capital of southern Nimruz province, a significant setback for the beleaguered puppet Afghan government. In Zaranj on the fringes of Pashtun majority areas, the ANA did not put up a serious resistance and either defected or handed over their US supplied weaponry to the Taliban. The same pattern is expected to be repeated elsewhere.

US & EU are Zion slaves

SF, put a map where they enter and which Afghan ethnic groups they are.
Like I said the South of Afghanistan is under Pakistani Pashtuns “Taliban” a look at history and you see.
South Afghanistan is Pashtuns…when they attack their own kind? NEVER.

UKROPISSTAN HOMO AND CORRUPT COUNTRY

Not that they have an option either they they switch sides or they will be beheaded.

YankeeGoHome

Behead? Taliban.? You confuse Taliban with US Foreign Legion troops (ISIS/DAESH/ISIL)

Chess Master

Taliban were viral with their beheadings, long before ISIS existed. You are a lot younger than the Internet, probably.

GoldStandard

Taliban learnt this fundamentalist extremism in the Saudi funded madrass’ built in Pakistan since 1980’s. Public beheading is a Saudi Whahabbi trademark. Saudi state performs Sharia Law beheadings in public – often in car-parks. When you fuel your SUV up in US with Gulf sourced fuel, you are effectively supporting all of this.

The devious GHANI regime is devastatingly trying to play the role of a victim, while it was the child-killer regime that started the aerial aggression on Lashkargah

GoldStandard

Helmand Province represents a significant part of the NATO story in Afghanistan. Back in 2009 the ‘surge’ in Helmand Province was heralded in MSM as a big military step forward by NATO toward resolving the already nagging Afghan conflict. It was the Obama era refocusing on the (then) de-prioritized war in Afghanistan, after several years of unexpected and heavy violence during the Iraqi occupation-insurgency. But turns out NATO was just stuck in another quagmire, with even less of a coherent exit strategy. And now, a decade after the US and UK forces ‘surge’ commitments to pacifying Helmand Province, this key province in the NATO 2009 reboot strategy is quietly slipping back under control of the Taliban.
