New Delhi: Fresh fighting has been reported in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley, the last territory which remains out of the hands of the Taliban, BBC reported.
Amrullah Saleh, one of the resistance leaders in the valley, rejected reports that the Taliban has captured Panjshir as “baseless”.
However, he admitted that conditions are still difficult as Taliban closing phone, Internet and electricity lines.
In a video message sent to the BBC, a former vice-president of Afghanistan, Amrullah Saleh, said there had been casualties on both sides.
“There is no doubt we are in a difficult situation. We are under invasion by the Taliban,” he said, adding that his forces would not surrender.
But resistance leaders concede that some districts have fallen to the Taliban, while pro-Taliban social media showed clips seeming to show their fighters with captured tanks and other military gear.
Rumors that the Taliban has captured Panjshir prompted celebratory firing ringing out in Kabul and other cities, reportedly killing a number of people. (IANS)
