In Nangarhar and Laghman provinces in the east, the people have taken up arms to fight the Taliban, and also in the western province of Herat.
“At this point, the politics of bullying cannot rule, these armed men say that they will not allow the Taliban to rule them and burn their gardens and fields as in the past,” said Mir Naeem Haidari, deputy head of Kohdman council.
“Let us sit like two brothers and resolve the issues of Afghanistan,” said Mir Ghulam Jailani Darwish, a resident of Kohdaman.
Paying tribute to the ANDSF, MP Hazrat Ali said: “I know that you face hard days, but I congratulate you because you are the winners.”
