Panjshir in our control, say Taliban; Amrullah Saleh denies claim

Taliban has said the group had on Friday seized the Panjshir valley north of Kabul, the last province of Afghanistan holding out against it, although Former Vice President Amrullah Saleh has denied it had fallen.

“By the grace of Allah Almighty, we are in control of the entire Afghanistan. The troublemakers have been defeated and Panjshir is now under our command,” said one Taliban commander.

Deafening volleys of celebratory gunfire resounded all over Kabul and Facebook accounts were full of mentions of the fall of Panjshir.
