BREAKING: Afghans Take Matters Into Their Own Hands, Score Big Victory Against Taliban


The Afghan people have reportedly started fighting back against the Taliban.

As CNN’s Clarissa Ward reported, “As soon as we leave our compound, it’s clear who is now in charge.”

“Taliban fighters have flooded the capital. Smiling and victorious,” CNN’s Ward said. “They took this city of 6 million people in a matter of hours — barely firing a shot.”

“This is a sight I honestly thought I would never see: scores of Taliban fighters, and just behind us, the U.S. embassy compound,” Ward said. “Some carry American weapons. They tell us they’re here to maintain law and order.”

A Taliban commander is seen telling CNN that “everything is under control” and “will be fine.” Footage has surfaced of fighters waving their weapons and chanting “Death to America.”

Now Afghan people appear to have begun the process of taking matters into their own hands.

NATO-backed forces weren’t enough to stand up to the Taliban over the last few weeks as the terror group swept across the country.

Anti-Taliban resistance fighters have recaptured some of their localities.

There are reportedly still Afghans who refuse to stand by and allow this siege to take place.

Reports have circulated that the Afghan flag had been hoisted once again in the Pol-e-Hesar, Deh Salah and Banu districts of Baghlan province.

About 60 Taliban fighters were injured in the fighting that proceeded these small victories, Newsweek reported.

The Afghan outlet Asvaka News Agency reported that “a number” of Taliban were killed in the process.

Earlier in the day, the Indian outlet Republic World reported that Pol-e-Hesar had been freed from Taliban control while an “intense fight” was underway in Deh Salah and Banu. This came even as the Taliban was meeting with Afghan military leader Ahmad Massoud.

Newsweek said there had been some confusion over whether the districts had been recaptured, however, and that the situation on the ground in Banu and Deh-e-Salah remained “fluid” as of the report Friday.

It was just 10 days ago that the Taliban captured the capital of the Baghlan province, Pul-e-Khumri, at the onset of what would turn out to be a swift and successful military campaign across the country.

According to reporter Tajuden Soroush of the London-based Persian outlet Iran International, resistance commander Abdul Hamid said the militia was advancing toward the Khenhan district and “will capture Baghlan province.”
