Forces led by former vice president Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, the son of former Afghan guerrilla commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, have been fighting the Taliban from this base in the mountains.
The Afghan National Resistance Front has told NDTV that the Taliban claims are baseless. “The road in the Panjshir Valley is with the Taliban. However, fighting continues in the sub-valleys,” they said.
“We assure the people of Afghanistan that the struggle against the Taliban and their partners will continue until justice and freedom prevails,” the Front also tweeted.
