With the threat of the fall of Kabul, Afghanistan falls back under the power of the Taliban

It is only a matter of days before the self-proclaimed warriors of God take power again in all of Afghanistan after 20 years. According to the local news channel Tolo, the Taliban are said to have already penetrated the Char Asiab district – just eleven kilometers south of the capital Kabul. This also surrounds the last bastion of the government troops.

During their campaign of conquest, the Islamists brought more than half of the 34 provincial capitals under their control. Tens of thousands are fleeing the fundamentalists.
