In August, the Taliban held military parades in the Afghan provinces of Ghazni, Logar and Laghman. The military parades were held amid the continued implementation of the US-Taliban peace deal by the US-controlled Kabul government. Under the deal, Kabul has released about 5,000 Taliban members so far. The release of Taliban members comes amid the further expansion of the group across Afghanistan and is set to pave the way for intra-Afghan talks, as well as the continuation of the withdrawal of US troops from the country.
