Taliban militants approached the outskirts of the Afghan capital on Sunday and stated that, after pledging not to use it by violence, they were waiting for a peaceful transfer of the city, but in the middle of uncertainty, helicopters were landing in U.S. Embassies.
The Associated Press informed three Afghan officers that fighters were in Kalahan, Qarabagh and Pagan districts in the capital.
The Taliban have derided, cooped or shipped Afghan security troops in a national onslaught, taking place just over a week, despite their US military assistance. The Afghan security forces are fleeing far and wide.
The push pace startled many and asked why Afghan troops collapsed during many years of US formation and spent trillions of dollars.
A few days ago, a US military evaluation projected that the capital will be under insurgent strain one month earlier.
Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban speaker, said that the militants are “awaiting the peaceful transfer to Kabul” from Qatar’s satellen news network, Al-Jazeera. He refused to provide details on prospective talks between his soldiers and the administration.
On Sunday, the Taliban negotiators went to the presidential palace to negotiate the transfer, said an officer of Afghanistan, speaking out of fear of reprisals on condition of being anonymous. When this move would take place, it remained unknown.
