Afghan resistance group claims arrest of Taliban forces


Kabul, August 16 (SocialNews.XYZ) An Afghan armed resistance group claimed to have arrested dozens of Taliban forces, as the Islamists celebrated their first year in power and others called it a “dark day”.

Five “Taliban occupiers” were killed and 40 captured in the Arezoo Valley of Panjshir province, National Resistance Front (NRF) spokesman Sibghatullah Ahmadi said as he posted photos of suspected captives.

The NRF is led by Ahmad Massoud, the son of notorious anti-Soviet guerrilla commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, and claims to fight for democratic values ​​such as fair political representation of ethnic groups, protection of the rights of women and fair elections.

The Taliban government has yet to comment on this claim.

However, Defense Minister Mullah Yaqoob Mujahid said on Monday that their forces would crack down on rebel groups under all circumstances.

To mark the first anniversary of the fall of Kabul, Taliban members marched through the city with US military equipment and their leaders spoke at a televised rally.

At the event, Taliban Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi called on the world to cooperate with their government.

On social media, many Afghans spoke about their ordeal and called it a “black day” for the nation.

In a statement, the UN diplomatic mission in the country said that “without change, things can get worse”.
