Terrorists from the Taliban have announced the capture of the Afghan city of Kandahar , the capital of the province of the same name. It became the 11th of 34 capitals to come under militant rule.

Official information about the capture of 600,000 Kandahar has not yet been confirmed. But if that turns out to be true, it will be a great strategic victory for the Taliban.

Meanwhile, videos of the Taliban on the streets of Kandahar appeared on social networks.

Referring to locals, Al Jazeera claims  that “fierce fighting” is taking place on the city streets. The battles continue in Herat – another large city, which has been under siege for several days.

Earlier in the day, the Taliban took another strategically important city, Ghazni. It is located on the main Kabul-Kandahar highway, which connects the bases in the south with the capital.

The situation in Afghanistan is forcing thousands of people to flee to Kabul, where temporary camps have already been set up. But not everyone has enough space in them, so others have to sleep outdoors.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the capture of the new provinces of Afghanistan is taking place against the background of the gradual withdrawal of US and NATO troops .

It was also reported that the  Taliban had captured 300,000 Kunduz a few days ago.

  • Well done Trump and Biden, you jackasses. You handed over Afghanistan to the Talies and their friends the putinazis . Soon it will become a fully-fledged terror state once more. That means more terror attacks in western countries and more cruddy Afghan throwbacks seeking asylum.
