The National Resistance Forces in Afghanistan have claimed to have repelled a Taliban’s attack with killing dozens of the Taliban fighters, Voice of America reported.
According to VOA, the NRF spokesperson, Sebghatullah Ahmadi has reported that the NRF led by Ahmad Massoud has been able to repel a strong attack of the Taliban forces on their military bases in Enaba, Rukha, Bazarak, Dara, Abashar and Khenj districts of Panjshir province.
Ahmadi has also claimed that the Taliban forces have been defeated carrying high casualties with at least 32 deaths and 13 injuries.
The number of casualties NRF forces had in this ambush is yet to be reported.
The Taliban has not yet commented about the reported incident, however, they have recently assigned Mullah Abdul Qayoum Zakir, one of their prominent leaders as the lead for Panjshir and Andarab wars, the two places where NRF forces have military presence.
This comes as that Afghanistan republic administration fell in to the hands of Taliban last August after the elected president, Mohammad Ashraf Ghani fled while an intra-Afghan talks between the Taliban and Afghan side were in place in Doha, Qatar.
Hundreds of the Afghanistan National Security Defense Forces members and special forces headed towards Panjshir province after the fall of the administration last year in order to establish a resistance force against the Taliban led by Ahmad Massoud and some other anti-Taliban figures.
Afghanistan, a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic country in South Asia has been into the war and political instability for at least four decades now.
The main motive behind these conflicts has been the the failure of different regimes in the implementation of ‘social justice’ in a way to please different ethnic and religious groups residing in this country.
The direct interference of the world’s superpowers including the Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and recently the US and its NATO alliances have also not helped to build a stable and inclusive administration.—Khaama News Agency
