France 24 news agency had an interview with the foreign affairs officer of the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRF) Ali Maisam Nazary.

In the interview, Mr. Nazary claimed that the Taliban "cannot win" in the northeastern Panjshir Province and that "the resistance is continuing" as well as the fact that the NRF is controlling "more than half" of Panjshir - whatever disapproving of the Taliban's counter-propaganda.

Ali Maisam Nazary added that NRF Leader Ahmad Massoud is still "in the country", has no intention of leaving Afghanistan and will "continue to resist until we achieve freedom and victory".

Mr. Nazary further emphasized to France 24 that "the Taliban cannot represent the Afghan people" and that "the Afghan people do not want the Taliban to represent them".

In the Panjshir battlefield, the situation is gradually turning unfavorable for the Taliban.

According to the NRF's unconfirmed sources, on the night of October 5-6, the Taliban launched a large offensive with mortar support from Rokha District of Panjshir Province and from Kapisa Province towards the Dastak peak in the southeast of the capital. Barazak government.

It is known that a motorized Taliban convoy moving in the direction of Kapisa - Panjshir was ambushed by the NRF, leaving about 20 Taliban fighters killed and wounded.

Not only that, the NRF's counterattack from Dastak forced the Taliban to withdraw from Rokha district - this means that the capital Bazarak is currently under siege by the NRF.

In recent hours the NRF has also driven the last of the Taliban fighters out of Khatak Khawak, a border crossing linking Khenj District northwest of Panjshir with neighboring Baghlan province.

It should be noted that fighting is currently mainly taking place in the southwest of Panjshir Province.

This means that Ali Maisam Nazary's claim that the NRF controls "more than half" of Panjshir (including Paryan, Dara, Khenj and Rokha districts) is quite accurate.

Before the attack, the Taliban was said to be present only in the vicinity of the Saricha road (the main road in Panjshir) to the end of Bazarak District.

The withdrawal of this force from Rokha District means that the capital Bazarak will most likely change hands in the coming days.

If this turns out to be true, it will put an end to the Taliban's declaration of "total control" of Panjshir exactly a month ago and the beginning of a complete withdrawal of radical Islamists. from the stronghold of the Afghan insurgents.
