Must Read

According to an Afghan provincial leader and army officer, the Taliban have taken control of Afghanistan’s main border crossing with Tajikistan, with several security forces leaving their stations and escaping throughout the border. Shir Khan Bandar, located 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Kunduz, is the Taliban’s most major victory since ramping up operations on May 1, when the United States began the final steps of its military departure. The strike comes as the United Nations special envoy for Afghanistan warned that Taliban insurgents have gained control of more than 50 of the country’s 370 districts since May and that greater violence “means heightened instability for many other nations, close and even far.”
