At least 600 Taliban fighters killed in Afghan's Panjshir

Spokesperson said that the Taliban had problems with getting supplies from other Afghan provinces.

 

Over 600 Taliban terrorists have been killed in Afghanistan's northeastern province of Panjshir, the Afghan resistance forces informed on Sunday.

 

"About 600 Taliban have been liquidated in various districts of Panjshir since morning. More than 1,000 Taliban have been captured or surrendered themselves," the resistance forces' spokesperson Fahim Dashti said in a tweet.

 

He further added that the Taliban had problems with getting supplies from other Afghan provinces. Meanwhile, the Taliban offensive against Panjshir resistance forces has slowed down due to the presence of land mines in the area.

 

A Taliban source said fighting is continuing in Panjshir but the advance had been slowed by landmines on the road to the capital Bazarak and the provincial governor's compound.

 

Panjshir is the stronghold of the National Resistance Front, led by Ahmad Massoud, the son of late ex-Afghan guerrilla commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, and ex-Vice President Amrullah Saleh.
