Taliban have seized another large arsenal in Panjshir, Massoud's troops have less and less opportunities for "guerrilla warfare"

Fighters of the Taliban terrorist group (* banned in the Russian Federation) are spreading information about the seizure of another large arsenal of weapons and ammunition in the Panjshir province. This arsenal, according to the Taliban *, is located in the Khinj area, which came under their control about a week ago after brief fighting with the militia of Ahmad Massoud.


It is noted that on the territory of Khinj there are over 10 tons of ammunition, including grenade launcher shots and mines, as well as several hundred units of small arms. weapons of various models and manufacturers. These are both Soviet-style weapons and American assault rifles.

On the eve of the Taliban * announced the capture of another large arsenal in the Panjshir Valley, which was abandoned by the Front of the Afghan National Resistance - FANR.

In this regard, it should be noted that Massoud's militia, which retreated into the mountains and promised the Taliban a "guerrilla war," may simply not have enough weapons and ammunition left to conduct any productive military operations against the Taliban militants. At the same time, Massoud also has problems with the fact that the Taliban have recently controlled almost all entrances to Panjshir and key transport infrastructure, including the Salang tunnel. In such a situation, the FANR clearly decreased the number of opportunities for obtaining supplies from outside.

    Well, this is what was in the settlements, and what was hidden in the caves in the mountains?

      Most likely the elders are handing over the caches. It makes no sense to have remotely, in the mountains, artillery shells without guns and tanks. Yes, and delivering weights there on the ridge and perhaps donkeys is a difficult matter. We saw large storage facilities for artillery and tanks. Ammunition records for them must-
      be nearby. In the distance, in the mountains, only light weapons.

        The elders must hand over something.
        But the quality of what is being handed over is not very clear from the staff.
        I could be wrong, but IMHO, the first warehouse looked fine, and this one is junk. hi

      Pakistani intelligence ties and support for the Taliban have long been known.
      Among the publications on the situation in Afghanistan came across information about the active support of the Taliban by the Pakistani army! They write that during the Taliban offensive this summer, about 300 tons of Pakistani soldiers were killed in Afghanistan.

        killed about 300 tons of Pakistani military.

        Half of the Pakistani army or what? wink Wow. The monuments to the Afghan army should be erected, not criticized. sad

          Before the Americans, when withdrawing their military contingent, did not abruptly cut off supplies and support to the Afghan army, on the whole, they coped with it.
          Yes, and the Taliban, despite their bravado, suffered very heavy losses, even the Russian Foreign Ministry made statements apparently about the end of the Taliban's seasonal offensive.
          https://tass.ru/politika/12066345
          Nobody expected how it turned out in the end
          300t about 300 people.

            300t about 300 people.

            300 tons is 300 people. The Afghan army had 000 thousand regular flights + Police + a bunch of different weapons, up to tanks and Super Tucano + Helicopters, MLRS, art, and millions of small arms.
            Th 300 is not a loss. This is one good fight for the city of 40-50 thousand people. And there they take 6 million from Kabul.

              Perhaps the wrong cut was made by 300t (three hundred).
              A reduction of 300 is 000 thousand, or at least 300 tons.
              Taliban casualties during the summer offensive are about 8. 600 people are the loss of the Pakistani military who participated in the battles on the side of the Taliban.

              The number of the Taliban is about 70 thousand, they write that the Pakistani intelligence for the offensive was able to actually double the forces of the Taliban by driving all the Islamists they could into Afghanistan.

              The Afghan army in many ways turned out to be practically paper, the number was deliberately overstated for corruption purposes. And probably the main problem is that the Pentagon created the Afghan army as an auxiliary unit of the American army, closely integrated with the American troops, also fully supplied by the Americans. With the beginning of the withdrawal of American troops, the supply chains of the Afghan troops began to collapse. Unaccustomed to acting independently, the Afghan army found itself without the usual command and intelligence support of the United States.

              By the way, practically all the aviation that remained at the Afghan airfields and that the Taliban inherited is not working properly, this is a vivid example of the destruction of the supply chain of the Afghan army. What could fly on that, in the end, the Afghan pilots fled.

                You write everything correctly. But there is a correction: 300 is the number on paper.
                Various sources claim that 30-40 thousand of them were paper.
                The special forces actually fought with the Taliban. There were 50 of it and all of them are real.
                And the fact that the States left them with security made their struggle meaningless. hi

              It was not an army. Just a crowd of Afghans hired by the "American masters" as long as they were well supplied with weapons and paid "grandmothers." But they certainly did not have any "ideological" change towards European democracy. Also, they will be hired everywhere, even in Somalia, even in any Sahara, just pay money. And then they quickly scatter when all supplies are over. This is what happened in Afghanistan. The Americans, if the Afghans smiled at them, thought that "everything is okay", "Afghans have become Europeans" .... Of course, there are some urban Afghans who share these European values, but there are few of them. And all this "crowd" who had hired to fight there were ordinary villagers, neither in the least nor in spirit sharing any "democracies" ... And the Americans were engaged in self-deception ... Therefore, everything failed.

          Well, besides that, Masood Sr. was "warmed up" very strongly by the Pakistanis and many others. And for a reason. They, in fact, had their own "Ho Chi Minh path" to other provinces through Panjer, and who will support Masudik himself is not clear at all.

    According to the storage conditions, it looks more like a scrap metal warehouse or a storage room for seized material evidence.

    IMHO, if at least half of the "rumors" in Kabul are true, about the Haqqani network and other delights, then God-Allah-Yahweh himself ordered the CSTO-Uzbekistan to carry out a special operation to eliminate Haqqani and the most odious "students".
    Return Barodar to key posts, as the most sane.

    Is it Panjshir? Or again, Taliban propaganda, they are great masters of constructing misinformation. The Taliban want to seize the river valley. But this valley is not the Panjshir gate. You can enter there, why not. The problem is how to get out of there. In the gorge, every self-respecting man has an arsenal. That's how they live there. And the locals do not care who to spank from their arsenal - a student with a beard or an American soldier. Who cares, and without propaganda, read the history of Afghanistan, now there are many books in translation. Abd al-HafizMansur. Panjshir in the era of jihad.

    - It seems to me that the Taliban have already begun to fight among themselves ...
    - Rather ... - what's the point of these Taliban to climb into some inaccessible gorges ... - and wage bloody battles there ... there is a war going on in the mountains ... - And for the sake of reliability, they periodically show some kind of "junk raw material" and pass it off as "real ammunition" ... - So they will soon "conquer" this Panjshir ... and declare "complete victory" "...
    - Well, the locals will remain in their own interests ... - they simply will not (and cannot) be brought into "complete obedience" ... - That's all ...
    - As soon as the Taliban allegedly "enslave Panjshir", they will actually leave there and the same "local self-government" will remain there, which was before ...
    - And it just won't work out in another way ... - Of course, China ... turns out to be in such a stupid position ... - So the Taliban too - soon they themselves will find themselves in a stupid position ...
