Three Taliban sources said that the Taliban had captured the Panjshir valley north of Kabul. This was the last part of Afghanistan holding out against it.
“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.
Confirmation of the reports was not possible. Amrullah Saleh, one of the opposition leaders, stated that reports that he had fled the country were false. “There is no doubt we are in a difficult situation. We are under invasion by the Taliban … We have held the ground, we have resisted.” he said.
