Resistance Rejects Taliban Victory, Says Fighting Isn't Over

Click to see full-size image

National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRFA) continues to clash with the Taliban, its spokesman Ali Nazari said on Twitter.

This came less than a day after Taliban claimed to have captured Panjshir in its entirety and having consolidated control over the entire country.

On September 6th, the Taliban claimed victory in the capture of the Panjshir valley. This presumably completed their takeover of the country and they would unveil a new government soon.

Pictures on social media showed Taliban members standing in front of the gate of the Panjshir provincial governor’s compound after days of fighting with the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRFA), commanded by Panjshiri leader Ahmad Massoud.

“Panjshir, which was the last hideout of the escapee enemy, is captured,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told a news conference.

Massoud did not concede defeat, saying his force, drawn from the remnants of the regular Afghan army as well as local militia fighters, was still fighting.

“We are in Panjshir and our Resistance will continue,” he said on Twitter. He also said he was safe, but gave no details on his whereabouts.

The Taliban assured the people of the valley that there would be no “discriminatory act against them”. The people living in Panjshir valley are ethnically distinct from the Taliban.

“They are our brothers and would work together for a joint purpose and welfare of the country,” Mujahid said.

In the “new” Taliban governance, universities are beginning to reopen with a new addition: curtains separating male and female students.

Inside Afghanistan, hundreds of medical facilities are at risk of closure because the Western donors are barred from dealing with the Taliban, a World Health Organization official said.

The WHO is trying fill the gap by providing supplies, equipment and financing to 500 health centres, and was liaising with Qatar for medical deliveries, the UN health agency’s regional emergency director, Rick Brennan said.

China’s ambassador to Afghanistan promised to provide humanitarian aid during a meeting with senior Taliban official Mawlawi Abdul Salam Hanifi in Kabul, Tolo news reported.

China has not officially recognised the Taliban as Afghanistan’s new rulers, but Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi last month hosted Mullah Baradar, chief of the group’s political office, and has said the world should guide the new government rather than pressure it.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin meanwhile met Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, as Washington seeks to build a consensus among allies on how to respond to Taliban rule.

War in Afghanistan is far from over.
If this time talibans are defeated again they will never ever create or succeed in running a country..
Anyway they are filthy evil animals not humans.

US & EU are Zion slaves

The “war” is over, like it or not and that is okay, I feel sorry for Shi’a (True Muslims) and Hazara but other than that fuk all backward Sunnis really. Taliban are just like UAE/KSA but just poorer.
Afghanistan never really had “freedom” even now, they need money, food, etc, etc and those backward Sunnis are good for nothing and can do about fuk all.
Their collar is on China, Russia, Iran, and Pakistan hands now. They behave or they get fuked in the ass again.

Two things you need to remember, Afghans are mostly Sunnis and they need peace be it under the Taliban.

US & EU are Zion slaves

“Taliban are just like UAE/KSA but just poorer.”
Just to be more clear do you give 2 fuk about Saudis? No. Do you give 2 fuk about Wahhabi Sunnis killing Shi’a in KSA? No.
Don’t worry it is all fine, it is no longer “the West” problem…if the Taliban don’t obey and start a war or cause any problems, they get fuked.

In a year or so the civilian Afghana can leave Afghanistan, for a better place as well.
The West shouldn’t take in Sunni ones tho, Shi’a or Hazara, they are in danger the most.


your mama is filth. There is no lower human being than a collborator.Masoud and Saleh collaborated and assisted US pigs in the murder of Afghanis. They should be flushed down the toilet. Northern Alliance pimps will always be pimps and rapists like the generation before them.

Spoken like a true western narcissist.

Let the afghans sort themselves out, the empire had 20 years and did nothing. You are the evil animal, let the afghans sort out THEIR COUNTRY. Its not yours its theirs. Imperialist prick!


Massoud Jr, who was killing 800 Taliban per day on Twitter, has run away to Tajikistan (assuming he was in Panjshir in the first place) leaving 16 year old boys to die fighting the Taliban to cover his escape. The Panjshir militias, during the 20 year American occupation, also acted like professional criminals, extorting money from Kabul businesses, abducting young women, running prostitution rackets, etc, thoroughly alienating the ordinary Afghan people. There is next to no chance today of any kind of Northern Alliance resurrection, let alone a march on Kabul as in 2021.

He is well skilled in winning wars through press conferences and media releases. Let’s see how that helps him.

ita a matter of time, the Taliban remains undefeated. period.


Les Talibans ont été créés par la CIA pour lutter contre les Russes en 1979. Mais il semble qu’à présent ceux-ci n’aient à présent plus rien à voir avec les USA.
Ils comptent peut -être sur les Talibans pour saper la sécurité de l’Iran. La fait que les talibans soient aidés par le Pakistan n’est pas anodin, des intérêts géo stratégiques nauséabonds sont en jeu.
Curieusement, la Russie et la Chine, qui sont de grands alliés du Pakistan sont les principaux pays à s’être rapprochés des talibans

Je me collerais pas trop au nom Taliban. Ces sont en general des gens de la tribu pashtun. Ceux que les americains on utiliser pour combatrre les.soviets sont al quaeda, pas les.talibans.

Oui le.pakistan a sa main dans le chaudron ici, mais moi je vois les talibans comme un mouvement afghan, pour les afghans. Ca fais 40 ans que l’homme blanc detruit ce beau pays, laissons les tranquil voir quoi ils.peuvent faire.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
