Panjshir resistance co-leader Ahmad Masoud refutes Taliban claim

 Panjshir resistance denied Talibans claim to have captured the province.

"Taliban's claim that they have occupied Panjshir has been discredited. To continue fighting, the NRF forces are present at all strategic positions in the valley. "We assure Afghans that the fight against the Taliban and their allies will continue until justice is served and freedom prevails," said the National Resistance Front (NRF), in a tweet.

The last remaining Taliban holdout, Panjshir, has been captured by Taliban fighters.

Zabiullah Mujahid, acting minister of culture, information, and spokesperson for the Taliban, stated in a statement that their efforts to establish nationwide security have paid off, and the province was taken by 'Allah and the support from the people, Khaama News reported.

For the past seven days, Panjshir has seen heavy fighting between the Taliban resistance forces and the Taliban for its independence. Both sides have claimed casualties.

According to the report, some resistance forces were killed and others fled the province.

The statement stated that Panjshir's people are not to be discriminated against, they are our brother and will work together for Afghanistan's development.

In the final night of conflict in Panjshir, General Abdul Wodod (a key commander of resistance forces) and Fahim Dashti (the spokesperson of the forces), were both killed.

Ahmad Masoud, the co-leader in the resistance, had previously offered negotiations to the Taliban but they refused.
