The Taliban on Monday captured another district of Afghanistan. Confirming this, the terrorist organization said that many soldiers surrendered before us.
Taliban fighters on Monday seized control of an important district in Afghanistan’s northern Kunduz province and laid siege to the provincial capital. The police told about this. Provincial police spokesman Inamuddin Rahmani said fighting around Imam Sahib district started on Sunday and lasted until noon on Monday.
The Taliban attacked the district headquarters and captured the police headquarters. Taliban fighters are only a few kilometers from the capital of Kunduz province but did not enter the city. However, there are some reports that some Taliban fighters are present in the outskirts. Since the withdrawal of American and NATO troops in Afghanistan began on May 1, many districts have been controlled by the Taliban.
Taliban spokesman confirmed
Located on the northern outskirts of Afghanistan, the Imam Sahib of northern Kunduz shares a border with Tajikistan and is an important supply route to Central Asia. Rahmani said the police and Afghan National Army soldiers tried to protect the district. He said it was not immediately known how many security personnel were killed or how many Taliban fighters were killed during the defense of the city.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid confirmed that the Imam Sahib district is now under Taliban control and “we have heard that many soldiers have surrendered to the Taliban.” Many more districts in Kunduz have also been captured by the terrorist group. These include Achin next to Imam Sahib.
