Reports state that fighting has occurred in at least 70 districts across the nation in the past 24 hours.
Local officials in Badakhshan said that widespread fighting has continued in 12 districts of Badakhshan.
“Security forces were deployed in two or three checkpoints, but we asked the security forces to evacuate the schools so that the youth can pursue their regular schooling,” said Khalil Rahman Jawad, the commander of Badakhshan.
“13 districts in Badakhshan are facing imminent threats,” said MP Zabiullah Atiq.
In Badghis province, there are reports that nearly 100 security force members have surrendered to the Taliban in Abkamari district and given up two Humvees and a large number of weapons.

War has significantly increased in Afghanistan after the official announcement of the withdrawal of foreign forces from the country. There are reports that the centers of 20 districts have fallen to the Taliban in the past 2 months.
The surge in the level of violence comes as US and NATO forces have been continuing their pullout from Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, there are reports the Pentagon is considering whether to intervene with warplanes or drones in the event that Kabul is in danger of falling to the Taliban, though no decisions have been made, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.
Senior officials told The New York Times that the Pentagon is considering seeking authorization to carry out airstrikes to support Afghan security forces if Kabul or another major city is in danger of falling to the Taliban.
The report mentioned that Biden and his national security aides had previously suggested that once US troops left Afghanistan, air support would end as well, except for strikes aimed at terrorist groups that could be considered a threat to American interests.
