On Saturday, Taliban fighters captured two checkpoints of the Afghan Army in Pashtun Kot district of Faryab Province in northern Afghanistan following a long siege on them, according to the Taliban news agency Voice of Jihad.

Voice of Jihad also announced that the Said district of Faryab Province is now under the full Taliban control after its members have captured 5 checkpoints of the Afghan Army and Police in Surkhab and Karez areas in Said district.

Moreover, Voice of Jihad announced that Taliban fighters attacked a checkpoint of the Afghan Army in Badghis Province in northwestern Afghanistan. 5 Afghan soldiers including a commander, Abdul Manan, were killed and 5 others were captured by the Taliban during the attack.

The northern and northeastern areas of Afghanistan have been witnessing attacks by the Taliban lately. However, so far, the Afghan Army and NATO have not taken any real measures to slow down the Taliban advance in these areas.

In a separated development, ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed that ISIS fighters attacked a position of the Taliban in Chaparhar district of Nangarhar Province in eastern Afghanistan. According to Amaq, 3 Taliban fighters were killed in the attack.

Nangarhar Province is now mainly controlled by ISIS and the Taliban. It has been witnessing ongoing clashes between the two Islamic armed groups for months now.

    Exactly what US/Israel wants – constant war where fanatics are killing each other in the name of distorted Islam.

    That’s what supposed to be happening in Surya if their plans worked – Nusra constantly fighting ISIS on the ruins of Suryan state.

      This is proof ISIS are US backed proxy as they sent ISIS members from DE area to here and Lebanon sent the leadership by plane to Turkey so they can be transported to Afghanistan by the US. This looks all to familiar as the only real fanatics are ISIS/Al Qaeda both share the exact same ideals as one another. The Taliban might have changed some if they were left alone , Mujahideen warriors were real fanatics as many joined Al Qaeda easily.

      Most of what we know of the bad was carried out by the Al Qaeda groups in the 80’s and 90’s , when Osama bin Laden left towards Aug. 2001 after the decline of the Al Qaeda factions in Afghanistan ,since he was in hiding most of the time there.

      At least the Russians learned from their mistakes. So how long you it will take for the US to learn from it’s mistakes.

      Answer: never
      Reason the country would have been broken into at lest 6 parts by then.

      The Russians were lucky to still be the biggest country in the world after the collapse of the USSR
