Taliban storm Kabul

The Taliban began to storm the Afghan capital.

After members of the Taliban terrorist movement (banned in Russia - editor's note) seized 24 of 34 provinces in Afghanistan, it became known that some of the militants began storming the outskirts of Kabul. So far, we are not talking about the entry of militants into the capital of Afghanistan. Apparently, the terrorists are trying to clear access to their main forces, since, according to a number of data, we are talking about an army of jihadists of 20-25 thousand people, which are armed with about 400 wheeled armored vehicles, at least two Mi-17 helicopters , 12 D-30 howitzers and several tanks.

At the moment, it is known that the Taliban militants are located about 8-10 kilometers from Kabul, which already allows the use of artillery to strike at the Afghan capital. At the same time, experts believe that the main goal of the militants will be precisely the airport, the destruction of the runways of which will allow to encircle NATO forces and either capture up to 5 thousand servicemen, or destroy them in case of resistance.

According to the data available to the editorial office of the news agency, at the moment the militants control the settlement of Hajil Khel, which is less than 10 kilometers from the Afghan capital, and the city of Maidan Shahr, located 15 kilometers from Kabul. So far, we are talking only about a few thousand militants, however, by morning, up to 7-8 thousand jihadists can be drawn here.

According to experts, the real assault on Kabul can begin by noon, and by evening the militants can take the capital of Afghanistan into a tight ring.
