According to local sources, the Taliban has seized the Gholmin area from government forces in Afghainstan’s Ghor province.

The Gholmin area is located north of Firuzkoh city (called Chaghcharan until 2014) which is the provincial capital of the province.

According to the province’s local authorities security forces in the area retreated without fighting.

Some sources even speculated that ISIS members supported the Taliban attack in Gholmin. At the same time, clashes were reported between the Taliban and ISIS in Jawzjan province. So, if the reports were true, it was a tactical cooperation.

Ghor province is one of the areas that witnessed clashes between Afghan security forces and the Taliban over the last few months.

Searately, the Taliban carried out attacks on Bergmetal city in Nuristan province in eastern Afghanistan. Local authorities requested more government troops troops and airstrikes on the Taliban to prevent the city from falling into the hads of the movement.

      They probably thought that the two would cancel each other out but it looks like the ISIS group was caught between another Taliban group and retreated as the govt security forces did. ISIS and the Taliban fight each other more than cooperate, but some ISIS groups have the Taliban infiltrating them.
