Taliban Advances In Faryab. Afghan Government Forces Abandon Their Positions

Taliban fighters during a military exercise before “Operation al-Khandagh”

On November 23, the Taliban announced that its fighters had captured 4 checkpoints of the Afghan National Army (ANA) and the Afghan National Police (ANP) in the districts of Almar and Gurziwan in the northern province of Faryab following successful attacks.

12 personnel of the ANA and the NAP, including an officer named “Habibullah,” were reportedly killed during the attacks. Taliban fighters also captured an armored vehicle along with loads of weapons and ammunition.

Few hours after the attack, the Taliban news agency Voice of Jihad reported that the ANA and the ANP had withdrawn from 6 other checkpoints in Almar. The news agency also revealed that a commander of Afghan government forces in Gurziwan, named “Haji Muhammad Salih,” defected on Novmber 22 and joined the Taliban along with 19 of his fighters.

According to the Taliban, the attacks in Almar and Gurziwan were a part of its spring offensive, codenamed “Operation al-Khandagh.” The offensive was launched on April 25 in response to Washington’s decision to increase the US military presence in Afghanistan.

    So once the Taliban have conquered the entire country, what happens then?

    • PK

      Afghanistan becomes a sovereign independent country and no foreign powers will tell them how to live their lives.

        Afghanistan will have countless bombs dropped on it’s civilians, while the USA prepares a ground in invasion to restate another puppet government. This USA and NATO will be one front lines clearing out caves one by one until the country is secured. Then they will leave the country and whole process will begin a again as the Taliban reemerge. this is sad nature of war, but to US war means profit while peace means civil unrest.

        Or the true genocide starts, like Cambodia ?

        • PK

          That is why Kissinger became a war criminal throughout Indochina. US imperialism led to millions of people massacred by US in countries like Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, etc.

      America needs to find a new producer of heroin if they want to keep their plebs docile.

        America and its racist supremacist Jewish slave masters need to find a new producer of heroin if they want to keep their goyim plebs docile.

    It is so good to see that after just over 17 years the US has finally got Afghanistan under complete control . Only three more years too beat their Viet Nam involvement record.
