Taliban Attacks Namak Ab Valley Of Ghor
Local sources told Hashte Subhe that the Namak Ab valley in the Ghor province has fallen following a Taliban attack. The sources also added that six members of the uprising forces had been killed in the valley.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_Security sources said that a commander of the popular uprising forces in the Ghorban Ha district of Parwan province was finally forced to surrender to the Taliban after 18 hours of fighting. The sources said that Commander Ghaffar had fought against this group for many years in the district of #Parwan.
Another source, on the condition of anonymity, said that the Taliban had set fire to the house of the Commander Ghaffar. At least 23 other members of the uprising forces have surrendered to the Taliban along with Ghaffar.
Meanwhile, First Vice-President Amrullah #Saleh has called the critics of the government “reactionary”.
“The enemy of the land and the people is known,” Saleh wrote in a short Facebook post on Tuesday. “It is a good thing to stand by the defenders of the soil and the people by any means. In such cases, the reactionary criticizes and writes sarcasm,” he said.
In recent days, Taliban attacks on government forces have escalated, causing government forces to retreat from several districts. Amrullah Saleh had said on Monday that the areas claimed by the Taliban to have fallen were just a “narrow line” without support. These areas will become mass Taliban cemeteries, and propaganda should not be deceived, he had said.
Amrullah Saleh’s remarks provoked widespread reactions and criticism on social media and networks.
