Panjshir resistance leader calls for ‘national uprising for freedom’ in Afghanistan
KABUL: Ahmad Massoud — leader of Afghan opposition group National Resistance Front (NRF) on Monday called for a “national uprising” against the Taliban.
In an audio message sent to the media, the leader of the resistance movement in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley said: “Wherever you are, inside or outside, I call on you to begin a national uprising for the dignity, freedom and prosperity of our country.”
The statement comes after Talban claimed that they have gained complete control over the Panjshir province.
Pictures on social media showed Taliban members standing outside the gate of the Panjshir provincial governor’s compound.
However, the claim was contested by the resistance forces in Panjshir, that said that reports of the Taliban taking complete control of the restive valley were “untrue.”
“NRF forces are stationed at all key positions on the valley to continue the battle,” said the resistance forces. “The struggle for justice, freedom will continue against the Taliban and their partners.” – AFP
