On June 7, the Taliban launched a new large scale military operation against the Afghan National Army (ANA) and the Afghan National Police (ANP) in the district of Pur Chaman of the western province of Farah, according to the Taliban news agency Voice of Jihad.

The Taliban claimed that its fighters managed to capture several positions inside the district center of Pur Chaman, including the district administration center and the headquarters of the ANP and the National Directorate of Security (NDS). Moreover, the Afghan group claimed that the chiefs of the ANP and the NDS in the district surrendered to its fighters.

Reportedly, Taliban fighters also advanced around the district center of Pur Chaman and captured the villages of Dehdar, Sar Hawza and Dabina.

According to the Voice of Jihad, the new military operation in Farah is a part of the Taliban’s spring offensive, codenamed “Operation al-Khandagh”, which was launched on April 25 in response to Washington’s decision to increase the US military presence in Afghanistan.

Earlier, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani announced a weeklong ceasefire with the Taliban. However,  the Taliban has not commented on the matter, so far.

    Wow, what a completely useless bunch of cunts the Afghan army and security forces must be. You know what lads, lay down your arms, surrender to these guys and let them take over and control Afghanistan because you sure a hell can’t defend or fight sh!t You’re a complete embarrassment and a f#cking joke to the whole world.

      makes you wonder…..history repeating itself here…..in a while there will be no part of Afghanistan left under government control…..

        Well technically the Taliban is the legal Government of Afghanistan.
        Just because the US invades a country and installs a puppet regime, doesn’t make it the legitimate government of a country.

          they were never elected. they have taken power by force. that doesnt make them legit. and if it comes to that…i prefer the lesserthan two evils…..US and mini skirts that taliban and the middle ages again….

            Are you russian?

            Lesser of two evil? How the fuck one more country used as nuclear launchpad for USA be the lesser of two evils.

            I rather see middle ages again than nuclear fallout.

      Why would anyone make an effort to fight the war of others?! Murica created this mess and now it wants some random conscripted aphgans which fight for bread to win a battle they themselves refuse to fight.

      Do like the Soviet Union, retreat.

      But, hey, zionists are too arrogant to do that.

    So who is paying for the Hezbolla-ification of the Taliban? Just wondering. And why? A bit of payback from the Russians perhaps?
